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. With the spotlight on single vineyards and specific sub-appellations such as Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, Carneros and Russian River Valley, Sebastiani produces wine under the Sonoma County, Appellation Selection and Proprietary Selection designations. Founded in 1904 by Samuele Sebastiani, the winery is best known for its Cherryblock Cabernet Sauvignon, one of Sonoma County’s most coveted wines. The winery is located just blocks from Sonoma’s historic downtown plaza and offers historical tours as well as extensive picnic grounds and hospitality venues. Sebastiani is Sonoma’s only continuously-operated, family-owned, century-old winery. In today’s era of mergers and consolidation, it is particularly proud of its family heritage. In 2001, case production was significantly reduced to 100,000 cases per year: producing only one brand, Sebastiani, exclusively from the great winegrowing regions of Sonoma County. The fermentation cellars were rebuilt from the ground up, utilizing state of the art equipment which allows for gentle handling of fruit and must and fermentation of small lots of wine from specific vineyards and vineyard blocks. The resulting wines are receiving unprecedented critical acclaim and are in high demand. Growing production incrementally to meet demand without sacrificing quality, the winery’s current production is 300,000 cases a year. Sebastiani’s most famous wine, the Cherryblock Cabernet Sauvignon, is complemented by the highly acclaimed blended red wine Secolo, the limited production Appellation Selection wines and a line of Sonoma County varietals which offer extremely high quality and exceptional value.

Has a dark garnet color and aromas of blackberry, cassis, clove and chocolate. On the palate, blackberry flavors predominate, with touched of chocolate and toasty oak. The finish has mild tannins and a compelling hint of dried herbs.

With a dark garnet color, this wine opens with Bing cherry and blackberry aromas, laced with subdued oak. Black cherry fruit and leafy, tea-like flavors gush over the palate. Less tannic, this elegant Cabernet has a beautiful softness on the finish. This wine pairs nicely with steaks and sharp cheeses.

Firm, with a tight, focused band of currant, anise, cedar and tobacco that unfolds gracefuly, revealing subtle naunces and excellent depth and concentration. Best from 2005 through 2011.

What a nice wine, so easy to drink, you might miss the complex nuances. Itrsquo;s very soft and lush, with well-ripened flavors of currants and cherries, and a hefty dose of oak. This lush Cab has a classy depth and elegance.
