États-Unis - AVA Sonoma County

Seghesio Estate 2017

€910 Flacon de 10cl

This wine takes us to Sonoma, north of San Francisco, to discover California’s famous grape, Zinfandel. On the nose, this wine is fruity with red cherry notes verging on cherry jam. The warm winegrowing climate brings a touch of pepper, cocoa and roasted coffee to this beautifully ripe wine. On the palate, it has a superbly rich body. With its flavours of stewed verging on candied fruits and beautiful freshness in the finish, this is a truly balanced wine.
