2007 Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma County

This is a first for the site – one vintage following another as consecutive posts on the site… but after the #10 rating for 2008 by the Wine Dictator, I had to try it as soon as I could.

I finally happened on the 2007 at an LDB outlet next to where I was buying my groceries tonight and promptly bought a bunch. I AM a Zin fan, after all.

I brought it home, opened it while cooking and promptly offered up the following post on Twitter, “…Holy crap it’s tasty.”.. and it is. The nose has all sorts of berry goodness followed up by flavours that eloquently yell berry, cherry, briar and spice!.. and finish it all up with firm tannins that mean business – and business is good. Very, very good.

It’s complex, tasty and a bit slutty at the same time. It’s like running into your hot doctor (if you have one) out at a club in a sexy black dress.

If you’re  Zin fan, or if you love a great, spicy and seriously tasty red wine, you should search this out. I like the folks at the winery… and I obviously love the wines. It’s not TOO much of the Zin fruit and at the same time, it doesn’t lack that dark fruity goodness.

Go Zin!
