Great value, considering the price. A nice, chunky red, full of berries and other fun stuff. An easy drinking, enjoyable table wine.

  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

Mocha and vanilla from toasty oak frame blackberry, fresh herb and cherry flavors. Earthy tannins linger. Drink now through 2007.

If you like Australian Shiraz, then you should try Syrah (same grape), especially this California delight. Hints of sun-warmed berries accented with a dash of spice produces a delightful wine to enjoy on a snowy evening with a bowl of chili.

Ripe and easy to like, with pomegranate, beef and spice flavors accented by refreshing structure and a deft hint of toasty oak. Drink now through 2006.

With inky purple color this wine reveals scents of wild strawberry mocha and caramel with touches of sage and rosemary. The flavors burst through with intense blueberry and strawberry jam notes wrapped around rich French oak and finishing with touches of milk chocolate sweetened cranberries and savory herbs.

Focused and lingering, with blackberry and huckleberry flavors that mingle nicely with mineral and savory Bay leaf, Syrah-like game and beef notes and a hint of white pepper and rosemary. Drink now through 2006.

A smoky, meaty syrah with enough tannin to rock a bone-in pork chop.

Medium violet red color, with very plump plum and mission fig notes up front. Rich and supple on the palate, with dark chocolate, mocha and spicy white and black pepper, and a touch of French oak in the finish.
