Seghesio Old Vine Sonoma County 2007 Zinfandel, $29.99, 92 points, is dark, almost a black color with yet a young transparent edge.
Wafting pleasant aromas of spicy earth, I knew right away this was going to be a special Zin.
Having an early palate of pepper, mild tobacco notes, and black fruit, complimented with a long gentle finish of white pepper and subtle hints of ginger, this quickly became a favorite of mine.
This is a well structured wine of distinction, balanced and very pair-able with most spicy foods and red meats (I enjoyed The Old Vine Zin with general Tso's chicken). Great as a standalone wine.
