Winemaker Notes

The 2009 vintage of this wine was ranked #12 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2011

This wine has blackberry, raspberry and other brambly fruits characteristic of Alexander Valley, as well as "Graham crust" undertones typical of our Home Ranch terroir. There are subtle hints of oak, briary acidity and soft, ripe fruit tannins.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

Edoardo Seghesio planted this vineyard in 1895 on the western benchlands of the Alexander Valley, those original vines accounting for about one-third of this zin. The cool 2010 season created this complex blend with petite sirah (9 percent), a wine that develops floral scents over layers of tar, black currant and crushed black pepper. Saturated with flavor, this is ready to decant now; if you cellar it, wait ten years or more for the secondary flavors to develop.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

A powerful wine, both ripe and densely structured. Aromas of black cherry and spicy loam lead to concentrated blackberry, licorice and toasty oak flavors that finish with firm, crisp tannins.

Vinous / Antonio Galloni

The clear highlight among these new releases from Seghesio, the 2010 Zinfandel Home Ranch wraps around the palate with plums, black cherries, mocha, chocolate and cloves. Rich, dark and sumptuous, the 2010 Home Ranch stands out for its depth and pure richness, while varietal notes take more of a back seat. Still, there is a lot to like in this mid-weight, polished Zinfandel. The 2010 is 93% Zinfandel, 5% Petite Sirah and 2% Carignane.
