Wine Advocate 90 points - The clear highlight among these new releases from Seghesio, the 2010 Zinfandel Home Ranch wraps around the palate with plums, black cherries, mocha, chocolate and cloves. Rich, dark and sumptuous, the 2010 Home Ranch stands out for its depth and pure richness, while varietal notes take more of a back seat. Still, there is a lot to like in this mid-weight, polished Zinfandel. The 2010 is 93% Zinfandel, 5% Petite Sirah and 2% Carignane. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. ” (Apr 2013)
In 1893, newlyweds Edoardo and Angela Seghesio purchased their new home in Alexander Valley. As winemaker for the most prominent winery in Sonoma County, Edoardo recognized great vineyard potential surrounding the modest home. In 1895, he planted the "Home Ranch" and began a lineage of four generations of grape growers in Sonoma County. This vineyard, in addition to producing quintessential Zinfandel, has long been the source for subsequent plantings of Seghesio Zinfandel.
