Don and Sons Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The smell invites you into the glass where you rst taste ripe raspberry and dried cherry fruit. Then the avor dives deeper into roasted shitake mushroom, light teriyaki, and sweet Chioggia beet avors as elements of the terroir of this vineyard site.

  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

Opened for 1 hour. Poured and drank. Nondescript initially with a licorice aftertaste. 30 minutes later easy to drink with fruity flavor and a tiny bit of butter finish.
