Seghesio Zinfandel Cortina 2018
The core of this blend comes from their Chen's Vineyard planted in 1972 in Dry Creek Valley. This site is named after the gravelly loam soils prevalent up and down Dry Creek Valley. Due to the prevailing afternoon breezes in Dry Creek Valley, the flavour profile tends towards red fruit. Bright aromas of dark cherry and black raspberry. Upfront fruit appeal supported with underpinnings of complexity and slight white pepper spice. Soft entry develops into warm, full mid-palate. The finish strikes an ideal balance of tannins, fruit and acidity.
93 Points - Wine Spectator Floral raspberry aromas lead to multilayered fresh sage, licorice and cracked pepper flavors, building richness toward briary tannins. Drink now through 2029.
