  The Seghesio Family Vineyards have a rich history, dating back to 1895 when Edoardo Seghesio and his wife Angela purchased their home in Alexander Valley, part of Sonoma County.

  The Seghesio Family Vineyards have a rich history, dating back to 1895 when Edoardo Seghesio and his wife Angela purchased their home in Alexander Valley, part of Sonoma County. They didn’t buy the land for the house - they bought it for the 56 acres that were ideal vineyard land. That year, the land’s first grapes were planted - Zinfandel. In 1902, Seghesio Winery was founded, but the Seghesios didn’t stop there. In 1910 they acquired even more land, in the region known as Chianti, California. On that land, they planed Sangiovese, Canielao Nero, Trebbiano and Malvasia, making the it the oldest planting of Sangiovese in North America. Six months before Prohibition, Seghesio took a gamble and made a significant purchase - a 4,000,000 gallon capacity winery with 1,100 acres of vineyards from his former employer, Italian Swiss Colony. Unfortunately, Prohibition hit harder than Seghesio expected, and he was forced to completely sell off his shares in the winery by 1933. In 1983, the company changed drastically, when Ted and Peter Seghesio decided to shift the winery’s focus to high-quality production and much smaller lots, producing wine under the Seghesio label for the first time. Ted became the both the winemaker and the deliverer of wine, and with the help of Peter, a successful distribution network was formed. After tending to over 400 acres of vineyards across many regions, Seghesio Family Vineyards has become a large, successful vineyard with fourth generation winemakers. Read less

Very dark "black plum" color in the glass. Oaky nose with slight hints of blackberries. Lots of fruit on the initial palate--blackberries and raisins (giving it sweetness). Fairly stern as it moves over the palate--some tannin and some acid. OK wine, but not my favorite from this maker. US$19.99 from the Wine Club in Santa Ana.

Fairly dark purply color. Somewhat woody nose with a slight astringency that suggests alcohol. Fairly fruity on introduction to the palate—blackberry and, maybe some citrus. Acid hit gives the citrus impression but it might also be compared to stone fruit—plum or peach. Some suggestion of spice—clove. Very warm finish, but, to the detriment of this wine, the final impression is fruity sweetness.

This is a remarkably well-balanced and easy drinking wine; a California "fruit-bomb" with depth. Typical Zinfandel brambleberry shines through with subdued tannins. Perhaps not the most thoughtful of drinkers, but if you're in the mood for an easy-drinker that doesn't sacrifice on elegance it's a great bottle.

Offers floral black raspberry and smoked pepper aromas. The flavors are full and soft, yet more acidity would provide lift. Finishes with notes of licorice and briary sage. Drink now through 2018. 2,000 cases made. -TF

The 2010 Zinfandel Rockpile bursts from the glass with racy red raspberries flowers mint cinnamon and sweet tobacco. The Rockpile is one of the more feminine sensual wines in this range but it too has excellent balance and plenty of early appeal. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
