2017 Seghesio Family Vineyards Todd Brothers Zinfandel
In 2014, we jumped at the first opportunity to buy fruit from second-generation grape grower Ken Todd. First planted by their fathers in 1956 on benchland soils northeast of Geyserville in Alexander Valley, Todd Brothers Ranch produces highly sought after fruit through stringent viticulture practices and a precision symbiotic match between rootstock and soil.
Briary blackberry compote and ripe plum give way to notes of Amarena cherry, dark chocolate shavings, cedar spice box and forest floor. This wine has a bright entry with a rounded mid-palate and finishes with soft, mature tannins.
