Don Sebastiani & Sons Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Aquinas 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has a classic Cabernet nose, with blackberry, black cherry, and plum components, and layers of deeper complexity. Dark chocolate and cardamom spice linger in the background with a hint of truffle. On the palate, blackberry cobbler flavors come through with dark chocolate, black cherry, and a touch of molasses. This wine's silky body is particularly inviting; juicy with fruit flavor, its full tannins give it a rich, fleshy quality. A big, full-bodied Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from start to finish, this wine's great fruit intensity yields to velvety tannins and a strong, bold finish.

  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

A bit sweet and simple on the nose with intense vanilla, jammy cherry and sandalwood aromas. This is round and smooth in the mouth, a bit on the low acid side and with only modest tannins making it “fruit forward” and there's plenty of fruit here, really quite raspberry-toned with notes of red cherry and blackberry thrown in for good measure. The finish is modest and clean with good freshness. Not complicated but easy to drink and well made. 85pts
