4.5 stars "This is just a wonderful, huge, jammy Zin. Smooth, full bodied, and ready to drink. Deep fruit and a bit of pepper make this one of our favorite Zins and a nice value!"

90 points "90 points and one star from the Connoisseurs' guide to California Wine: "Well-defined berryish fruit is the centerpiece in both the outgoing aromas and the full, fleshy flavors of this weighty effort, yet, for all of its volume and richness, it stays nicely on the varietal track with its background notes of dry spices and briar. It is youthfully exuberant and somewhat juicy in character, and it will be at its best in service with savory roasts of pork marinated in brine and basted with young port." (Jan. 2008) Perhaps one of the best buys in California Zin, the 2005 scored 90 points and was designated a Best Buy by Wine Spectator. Seghesio's Sonoma Zinfandel combines fruit from number of their estate vineyards, including Home Ranch, River Road, Lone Oak and San Lorenzo in Alexander Valley and Cortina in Dry Creek Valley. It is marked by lush dark berry and briary fruit on the nose and palate with a slight black pepper zip. Juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins keep this wine balanced, with nice depth and structure.
