Seghesio Winery Seghesio Zinfandel Rockpile 2006
2006 Seghesio Zinfandel Rockpile California WineWith our familys first planting of Zinfandel in SonomaCounty in 1895, we began to seek out vineyards whichshowcase Sonoma as the worlds premier appellationfor zinfandel. Rockpile, a narrow ridge some 1200 feetabove Dry Creek Valley, is just one of those areas.Steep, well-drained hillsides with shallow, rocky topsoilprovide for less vigorous vines, smaller berries andintensely flavored zinfandel.Brambly, spicy scentsMinerally mountaintop shale earth tonesSpicy cherry, blackberry flavors buffeted by dried herbsWarm breezes induced a plumy qualitySweet, polished tannins with juicy acidityClove and anise spices extracted from oak agingRockpile style lustrous, explosive ripe fruitFull-bodied and decadent -- Ted Seghesio winemaker This is a California Wine.
Well balanced, refined fruit dominated by cherry, long finish, silky. Wonderful with roasted meats and poultry. Medium to full-bodied. This is the kind of Zin I would expect from the Rockpile AVA... superior to other Rockpile Zin's I have tasted. Aging potential to 2014 - 15.
As a rule, one does not find Zinfandel wines of depth, structure and character at this (or any other) price point. Many are crude and alcoholic. This number is the exception; expect flavors of Himalayan blackberry, raspberry and plum with a firm, long-lasting and satisfying finish. There is power, good concentration and reasonable balance for such high alcohol content. Beautiful raspberry cordial colors. A workhorse California grape with aristocratic pretenses. Excellent value!
awesome. nothing wrong with it except for a closed nose...
This is such a great, deep but not too heavy zinfandel with refreshing fruit, spice, with firm tannins and intoxicatingly good.
Killer for burgers. Had some nice and surprising depth on that finish.
I Love Seghesio!
This broad-shouldered young Zin was fairly unexpressive when first opened, showing black licorice and bitter chocolate or espresso character, but with food and airing, opened up nicely. Serious depth in the earthy dark cherry and berry fruit, with a nice dose of black pepper, vanilla, and spice. As always, full-bodied and chewy in texture. A tad rough at this stage, should be great in another year or so. Well-priced for a Zin of this quality, and not all that far behind the great Seghesio single-vineyard Zins costing nearly twice as much.

In 1895, the Seghesio family came to Sonoma and planted their first Zinfandel vines. This Sonoma Zinfandel is a collage of fruit from four estate-owned vineyards and exhibits briar, spice, and rich berry character.
If you love the regular Sonoma Zin from Seghesio, it's time to try the old vine. The wine is dark, inky, and concentrated. Leathery notes mingle with plush fruits resulting in a complex, satisfying bottle.

Wine Tasting NotesOld Vine Zinfandel is created from a composite of our top Old Vine lots. The synergic consortium of farming and winemaking coalesce to produce exceptional fruit intensity and purity of flavor with stylistic preference, therefore creating a wine whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The Old Vine Zin is deliciously dark-fruited and savory-spiced with a kaleidoscope of flavor tones redolent of raspberries, ripe cherries, and black currants that are delightfully varietal in nature. These attractive qualities epitomize Old Vine Zin's distinctive "of the earth" briary/clove spice infusion with a richness that transcends time. Salute!
