Seghesio Family Vineyards 2011 Rockpile Zinfandel
Sonoma County, California

Zinfandel is a clone of a Croatian grape that is known as Primitivo in Italy. Seghesio Family Vineyards first began producing wine in Sonoma County in 1895; nine years after Edoardo Seghesio left his family's Piedmont, Italy, vineyards in search of a new life in America. The well-balanced 2011 Rockpile Zinfandel displays notes of red fruit and spice on the nose, with robust flavors of candied apple and currant on the palate.

Suggested Cut: This spicy Zin is an ideal counterpart to a juicy strip steak. Fries on the side, please.

Rating: 14.5/20
Price: $38
