2018 Seghesio Family Vineyards Mariah Zinfandel
Mariah Vineyard sits high atop Mendocino Ridge, a cool-climate site that yields a bright, fresh fruit profile – with all the spice, depth, and complexity that we love to cultivate in our Zinfandels. When the Dooling Family planted this vineyard in the 1970’s they did so with the intent of implementing sustainable and dry-farm practices that are still in place today.
Fresh hints of lilac and briary blackberry on the nose give way to a palate of raspberry, licorice and nutmeg spice, and a subtle hint of clay earth. Juicy with vibrant acidity, this Zinfandel is elegant with fine tannins leading to a smooth and velvety finish.
