Sebastiani Merlot 2010

External Review by NapaCabs.com:

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.

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.

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.
