Bright aromas of dark cherry and black raspberry. Upfront fruit appeal supported with underpinnings of complexity and slight white pepper spice. Soft entry develops into warm, full mid-palate. Finish strikes ideal balance of tannins, fruit and acidity.
95 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (May 2013): "Big, very ripe and long on essential blackberry fruit, Seghesio's Cortina bottling is a generously filled wine that succeeds on the strength of both balance and richness..."
94 points, Wine Spectator, "Top Wines List" (June 30, 2013): "Dark and intense, yet well-polished, with floral blackberry and pepper aromas and concentrated black cherry, bitter chocolate and black olive flavors that finish with muscular but ripe tannins."
93 points, Wine Enthusiast (June 1, 2013): "As always, Seghesio’s Cortina is a rich, complex Zinfandel. It captures Zin’s briary, brambly, spicy personality, with dense, wild forest-berry fruit, yet manages to be elegantly compact and even Cabernet-like in its tannin structure."
