  To Don Sebastiani and Sons, family is clearly an important aspect of winemaking. While Don Sebastiani and Sons wasn’t founded until 2001, Samuele Sebastiani created a winery in 1904, and started growing the company, as well as the town of Sonoma. Over the years, the winery changed hands many times, but it always stayed within the family. By 2000, the winery was producing eight million cases of wine a year. However, at that time, Don Sebastiani sold many of the assets and kept only the family brand and the Sonoma winery and vineyards. Though he stepped down as CEO and Chairman in 2000, that wasn’t the end for him. In 2001, he and his sons, Donny and August, founded Don Sebastiani and Sons, eventually growing production back up to two million cases annually. Today, Greg Kitchens and Michelle McClendon, winemakers for Don Sebastiani and Sons, strive to produce high-end wine at affordable prices. They don’t just source grapes from California - they’ve also formed partnerships to create Australian and Chilean blends, further expanding the company’s reach and complexity. Read less

Nice. A little Smokey but otherwise a really good Napa Cabernet. The 2007 is actually one of my favorites....But the 2005 is very nice!

Nice smell. Very acidic taste. Apparently, we drank this wine before it was ready. Looking forward to trying when it has matured.

A Bourdeaux style Cabernet that delivers in all aspects. Very smooth and easy to drink. Food friendly.

A good solid cab at a good price. I would think that a good smoked ham with thanksging meal would pare well with this wine.

A Bordeaux-style Cabernet that shows off a different side of Napa Valley.

87 Points - Wine SpectatorThis is a bit rustic, but very tasty, delivering tangy cherry, plum, cassis and cedar notes, with a splash of fresh mint. Drink now through 2012.
