Don Sebastiani & Sons Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004

Member Review by Qu:

I am from California and have visited the Napa wineries but am a know nothing as far as wine. But I do have fairly good taste. This is the best wine I've tasted for under $10. It is simply well balanced. A hint of smoke. Not to fruity and clean on your palette. If that makes sense. A good wine if your alone. May not impress wine snobs.

  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

Did not think it tasted very good. Kind of acidic/harsh taste.

Black cherry, raspberry and chocolate with a roundness of oak and vanilla and a velvety pepper finish. A good Cab for a great price!
