    December 9, 2015 - Tasted blind. Translucent ruby color turning crimson at the rim with a transparent edge. The nose is sharp and tangy with notes of cherry, raspberry, currants, chocolate, cola and a spice that can be persistently felt. The palate is medium bodied with bright, heightened acidity and a silky texture. Flavors of currants, plum, raspberry, espresso, smoke and meat are acutely concentrated that produces a long, zingy finish with mineral-laced tannin. At this point, it seems that the wine has developed considerable age, and has reached its peak. It should be drunk NOW but could probably keep until 2019. 91+

    August 30, 2015 - Romance in a glass . Elegant nose of dark chocolate and tones of blue berries. Mild tannis, cocoa, ink, dark cherry notes. Long finish. This wine is still humming (surprisingly). Glad I have one more bottle.

    May 11, 2015 - La famille Seghesio originaire du Piémont s’est installée en Californie, à la fin du XIXe siècle. C’est avec le cépage typiquement californien qu’est le Zinfandel que cette maison a fait sa réputation à l’échelle mondiale. Ce beau spécimen du millésime 2009 ne passe pas inaperçu avec son nez complexe de mûres, de framboise, de pain frais et de réglisse. La bouche est bien structurée avec l’équilibre de l’acidité, de ses tanins en souplesse et ses couches de saveurs. Velouté et gouteux, le Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel se démarques avec des flaveurs de fruits noirs, de poivre concassé et ses notes riches et crémeuses de chêne.
