Fruity with notes of ripe cherry. It has this greenness like fresh herbs that is pretty refreshing. Not too heavy but pretty full bodied for a Pinot Noir although it has well balanced acid and tannins. Not a lot of depth but easy to drink. Cannot complain for what it is.
Not good. Too bold. A bit headachy.
External Reviews for Don Sebastiani & Sons Pinot Noir Napa Valley Aquinas
Graceful yet seductive, this wine is laced with polished notes of cherries and red berries swimming amongst supple tannins and an elusive earthiness.
From the winery, 'A deep Ruby red hue, this Pinot Noir unfolds with the scent of rose petals, plums, maraschino cherries and warm cinnamon rolls. The palate bares flavors of raspberries, cardamom, cloves, orange peel, and huckleberries with a subtle finish of cedar and cassis.'
