Seghesio Sonoma 2010 Zinfandel, $18.69-$23.99, 91 points, begins with dark purple and ruby hues. The aroma starts as a spicy potpourri, but settles down with air. The flavor is very ripe and juicy blueberry and blackberries with hints of damson plum. The almost full body is rich and racy and finishes strong with black and white pepper with hints of cayenne. The one near fault I had is it is just a touch green, but it may just need a year or two in the bottle.
Seghesio is a very consistently well made wine and is available almost every where; in my experience Seghesio is always a value Zinfandel, even though the price is up two or three dollars.
Being an "earth friendly" (NHLS) wine gives a great incentive to buy the six bottles now for that barbecue later; your family and friends will be impressed!
