The last couple of nights my wife and I had a bottle of Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel 2005. This wine is the big brother to the Sonoma Zin from Seghesio which has been winning such praise from the Wine Spectator. This wine steps up the level of sophistication, with big red fruit packed with red raspberry and bright Bing cherry. This is a satisfying wine that will go well with roasted meets this time of year. It is a little more expensive than the Sonoma bottling, but is worth the extra every so often. Try it and see what you think.
