A pair of outstanding Zin's from the historic San Lorenzo Vineyard. I think Pete Seghesio is making a couple of California's best Zinfandels from his San Lorenzo Vineyard. Better yet we can actually get the wines, back when Seghesio Winery owned the San Lorenzo Vineyard it all went through their wine club. These Zin's are truly next level.
2015 San Lorenzo “Rock Garden” Zinfandel...$46.99
Plush and rich yet refined and structured, with licorice and blackberry aromas and supple black raspberry, smoky peppercorn and stony mineral flavors. Drink now through 2028.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator
2015 San Lorenzo “The Pearl” Zinfandel...$82.99
Remarkably rich and polished, this is impressively built and jammed with personality. Blackberry and smoky cracked pepper aromas open to plump black raspberry, licorice and clove flavors that slowly unfurl on the finish. Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Spectator
