Seghesio Family Vineyards 2009 Venom and 2011 Home Ranch Zinfandel Rated 90pts by Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate

Seghesio Family Vineyards 2009 Venom was rated 90 Points by Robert Parker in The Wine Advocate. 
The 2009 Venom Rattlesnake Hill Vineyard, a 100% Sangiovese cuvee, exhibits a garnet color with some lightening at the edge. The nose is classic Sangiovese (something I rarely say about this varietal in California), offering up notes of new saddle leather, underbrush, and jammy strawberry and cherry fruit. Medium-bodied, spicy, and deliciously drinkable, this enticing wine has been brilliantly executed by the Seghesio family. Enjoy this fully mature 2009 over the next 4-5 years. – Robert Parker  

Seghesio Family Vineyards 2011 Home Ranch Zinfandel was rated 90 Points by Robert Parker in The Wine Advocate. 
The dark ruby/plum-hued 2011 Zinfandel Home Ranch displays a big, briery, spicy, peppery, earthy bouquet, a supple, opulent, broad texture, surprising richness and plenty of up-front charm and seductiveness. This superb, full-bodied Zinfandel is one of the stars of the vintage. It should drink well for 3-5 years. – Robert Parker
