93 points "A seductive and vigorous Zinfandel, with smoky black cherry and blueberry aromas and youthful wild berry, sage and cracked pepper flavors that have a lingering finish and zesty tannins. Drink now through 2012. (Online Tasting Highlight 09/08)"

"While other Sonoma wineries have forsaken their zinfandel roots, Ted Seghesio continues the tradition his great-grandfather, Eduardo Seghesio, began when he first planted the variety back in 1895. The Sonoma bottling combines fruit from old vine sites and newer plantings, for complexity and balance. An exceptional, low-yielding vintage, the 2007 is like running through a briar patch, the juicy fruit continuing from nose to palate. The wine's tannins and hint of creamy oak are well integrated, creating a wine that's a complement to pizza, sausages and barbecue."
