Based on a previous tasting, I expected not to like this when I tasted it again in Feb. '08, but, oddly, I thought it was pretty nice. Perhaps the bottle I tasted before was not stored properly.

Not aged enough yet, but powerful and promising, a lot of tannins

Wine Tasting NotesThe color on this wine is incredible, a very dark crimson. The aromas of blackberry, espresso and black olives allude to the richness of this wine and start your mouth watering. It is very concentrated in the mouth with almost sweet blackberry jam fruit, terroir flavors and mouth-coating tannins. Ripe berry and oak frames the finish of this ripe and structured wine. Enjoy with a decadent meal: aged steaks or a prime rib.

This dark garnet-colored wine has black tea and black cherry aromas with hints of cigar box and mocha from barrel aging. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a hint of juicy blackberry, this wine is well balanced with flavors of cedar, raspberry and cocoa. The finish is long, carried by the toasty oak, forest floor character and structured tannins that promise this wine’s potential in the next several years. Enjoy now, cherishing the fine grained tannins and full body, or cellaring up to five years for a softening of the tannins and emergence of more spice, leather, vanilla and chocolate notes.

This dark garnet-colored wine has black cherry and blackberry aromas with hints of coconut from the oak. The flavor is full-bodied with lots of blackberry on the entry with firm tannins and subtle oak in the back palate. It is a richer chewier wine than the 2003 vintage due to the warmth and ripeness of the vintage. It will most definitely improve with bottle age.

Winemaker's Notes:

With over a century of winemaking experience in Sonoma, Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery focuses on crafting small lots of super-premium wines from the great growing regions of Sonoma County, becoming one of California’s most highly praised and awarded wineries for its Bordeaux and Burgundian varietals. For this wine, Sebastiani sourced the Cabernet Sauvignon from three Sonoma County sub-appellations known for their outstanding quality grapes and long-lived wines: Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Sonoma Valley. In keeping with classic Bordeaux style, they blended in Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec for added complexity and drinkability. Included was a small amount of Petite Sirah to contribute more color and tannin.
