Seghesio Zinfandel Rockpile 2009
Quite dark black plum color. Earthy, woody aromas. Noticeable blackberry fruit on the tip of the tongue, but that diminishes fairly quickly. Nice mouth-filling roundness. Firm, but not overbearing tannin. Sufficient acid to make it a good food match. This is a terrific wine. Slight bitterness on the back of the palate makes it seem more refreshing. Hard to believe that 15% ABV. US$29.99 at the Wine Club in Santa Ana.
Great zin! All the right qualities and in the right balanced amounts. 94 pts. -Wine Spectator Grand Tour 5/5/12
Great turkey wine. Beautiful fruit and red pepper notes. Best Zinfandel I had this year.
