Don Sebastian Reserva 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Intensives Purpurrubin. Korinthen und reife Kirschen in der offenen Nase, Datteln, Dörrzwetschgen und zarte Kakaonoten dahinter. Saftiger Auftakt mit zunehmend schwarzer Frucht und unverkennbarer Rioja-Wärme in der druckvollen Mitte, Speckpfl aumen und getrocknete Birnen, faszinierendes Wechselspiel zwischen Mineralik und runder Tanninstruktur, viel Schmelz bis ins zimtige Finale. Komplexer Rioja von Michel Rolland.

  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

Intensives Rubin mit feinem Granat. Dörrfrüchte und Milchschokolade in der facettenreichen Nase, auch Birnbrot, Rotweinfeigen und edle Nussschokolade. Cremiger Gaumenfluss mit veloursartigem Tannin und geleeartigem Extrakt, feine Lebkuchensüsse in der gut balancierten Mitte, wiederum vielschichtige Fruchtnuancen, Waldbeeren und getrocknete Kirschen, viel Noblesse bis ins sanft ausklingende Finale.
