Seghesio Cortina Zinfandel 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  200840

The 2016 Zinfandel Cortina is medium ruby in color and youthfully coiled on the nose, taking its time to release scents of sliced nectarine, rhubarb, boysenberry and blueberry accented by dried flowers, warm earth, garrigue and loads of spiciness. The palate is still tight and reticent to show its juicy fruits. It has a soft texture and very pleasing, juicy acidity, finishing long. I suspect this will reward another couple of years in bottle. Drink date: 2020-2030. Score - 92+. (Erin Brooks,, Dec. 19, 2019)
