External Reviews for Sebastiani Merlot
Leese-Fitch blends their Merlot from several vineyard sites throughout California, and the resulting wine is quite harmonious, aromas of caramelized apple, fresh boysenberry syrup, sage, and light clove.
Sebastiani Merlot has all the signature attributes of solid Merlot including black tea, dried herbs, black cherries and wild berries. It is ripe without being over-ripe. The new oak barrels add notes of espresso and mocha to the nose plus sweet vanilla to the palate.
Dark garnet and reddish in color, this 2010 is very much so reflective of a California Merlot. Aromatically speaking this wine combines black cherries, black tea, coconut, toffee, and light oak. The palate is rich, soft and approachable with layers of dark cherry, ripe fruit and lingering tea-like flavors. Balanced, elegant and fruit forward yet not overly ripe, this is exactly what we look for in Sonoma County Merlot. Enjoy this wine alongside a wide array of dishes, including pasta primavera, salami, grilled steak and herb-crusted lamb chops. - Mark R.
