Sonoma County honoured as 2019 'Wine Region of the Year' by Wine Enthusiast... citing Sonoma County’s “long history, resilience, commitment to diversity and global leadership in sustainability.”
Jeb Dunnuck, "....shines for its purity, elegance, and charm, and is certainly worth seeking out." ... We couldn't agree more.
Seghesio is consistently highly awarded by critics, and Cortina is your new must-have Zinfandel. In the past 15 years, Seghesio has had a wine in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines — 8 TIMES!
If there was such a thing as a “Zinfandel Whisperer,” Seghesio’s winemaker, Andy Robinson, would be it. Coaxing all of the boisterous flavours this variety has to offer is his specialty. Hailing predominantly from a single vineyard in Dry Creek Valley, the 2015 Cortina Zinfandel has a rich red fruit layering that we can’t get enough of. If you are looking for a wine to drink today or to age for a few years, this is it. We don’t always associate Zinfandel as a cellar wine, but Cortina is here to show you otherwise. We were only able to score a few cases of this gem, don’t miss out.
About the wine
We can’t think of a better way to get ready for fall than with a bold Zinfandel. A beautiful glass emitting wafting aromas of cracked pepper, dark fruits and dark chocolate. In the background, a crackling fire in the hearth, under your favourite blanket, curled up on the couch watching your favourite movie. The first sip is filled with warm spices, black raspberries and hints of pepper. The perfect evening starts with Seghesio Cortina Zin.

“Fantastic bottle, and probably one of the best zins I’ve had.” Maxime C.
94 points, Wine Spectator
“Epitomizes Dry Creek Zinfandel, with expressive and briary raspberry, mineral and white pepper flavors that open to elegantly complex cherry, sweet anise and dusty sage notes that persist toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2026. 3,613 cases made.”
93 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Zinfandel Cortina is medium garnet-purple in color with a seducing nose of lilacs, rose hip tea, dusty soil and garrigue over a core of kirsch, baked raspberries and mulberries plus a touch of baking spices. Big, rich, full-bodied and equally seductive in the mouth, it has a firm frame of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and spicy."
93 points, Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2015 Zinfandel Cortina (100% Zinfandel) offers a redder fruited, spice-driven style as well as medium-bodied richness, a light, elegant texture, and beautifully integrated acidity. It drops off slightly on the finish, but shines for its purity, elegance, and charm, and is certainly worth seeking out."
Wine Enthusiast 2019 Wine Region of the Year, Sonoma County
The environmental efforts have provided another means for Sonoma County to distinguish itself from the Napa Valley region, which hasn’t initiated a comparable sustainability campaign and also doesn’t feature the same level of diversity in growing regions and varietals. “I don’t know of any other region that has so many different micro climates in such a narrow range geographically,” said Mick Schroeter, winemaking director of Windsor’s Sonoma-Cutrer. The key to the region’s character, he said, is where the fog rolls in and how it burns off.
