Sebastiani Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2011 bears all the hallmarks of a cool climate, cool vintage Pinot Noir. It is medium dark with bright aromas of cherry pie, strawberries, camphor oil and toasted oak. The palate is layered with notes of cherries, sandalwood, spice and "forest floor." It finishes with sillky tannins, roasted coffee and energetic acidity. This is the perfect accompaniment to salmon, turkey, pork or chicken-apple sausages.

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.

Cherry flavors burst from the glass, accented by vanilla, mocha, and oriental spices, which, along with the silky texture, soft tannins, and lingering cherry and spice, make this Sebastiani's most varietal and elegant Sonoma Coast Pinot yet.
