Lot #57 SEGHESIO FAMILY VINEYARDS
PEBBLES & SAND
Home Ranch Vineyard
- Alexander Valley
ABOUT THE WINE:
This wine is typically a component in Seghesio’s Home Ranch Zinfandel and is not normally bottled as a stand-alone wine. More than 100 years ago, Edoardo and Angela Seghesio purchased 83+ acres named the Reddington Tract adjacent to their original homestead north of Geyserville, spanning today’s Highway 101 and the railroad tracks all the way to the Russian River. Under the current plantings of Zinfandel in the “Pebbles & Sand” adjacent to the riparian setbacks of the Russian River, the vineyard produces wines with evocative fragrant peach skin notes floating above a densely concentrated red and black fruit, rich mid-palate and fine grain tannins on the finish.
It’s often said that Zinfandel is the only truly American grape and, in many ways, the Seghesio story is a true reflection of the American dream. Every bottle of Zinfandel Seghesio makes is a realization of the dreams and aspirations of an Italian immigrant who came to Sonoma County in the late 19th century to build a family and a future. Sustainability has become a central tenet of their farming and viticultural practices with the continued health of the vineyards and the next five generations always in mind.
This wine was aged in a 35hL cask to preserve the vibrant lifted aromas and acidity while allowing the wine to reach harmony from entry to finish. Enjoy aromas of peach and orange peel complimented with fresh acidity and a rich mid-palate.
