B Side Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Sebastiani 2011

Member Review by Stallion:

Maybe better than the 2010....But another watered down vintage from 1 of the former best boutique Cabernets in and around Napa. The price is still $10 less than what it was in 2009.....and you can taste it in the wine. Thin....What happened with these guys?

  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

This offers everything you want in a Napa Cabernet, and at a decent price. It’s dry, balanced in acidity and tannins, and elegantly constructed, with classic blackberry and cassis liqueur flavors touched by oak. Not an ager, and doesn’t pretend to be; just a nice wine to drink now.

It is textbook Napa Cab on the palate, with an essence of black currant and dark red raspberry contrasting with firm structure and dusty tannins on the finish.

The nose on this Napa Cab is brighter than in previous vintages, with plum, cherry and violets dominating; however, the palate is rich and elegant, with subtle spice and darker fruit flavors. Great with meaty lasagnas or sausage dishes.
