Sebastiani Secolo Sonoma Sonoma County 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Secolo has aromatics of blackberries and black cherries, along with plum and blueberry notes from the Merlot. It also has mocha and truffle-like oak aromas and flavors. The mouth is surprisingly elegant considering the vintage with rich, black cherry fruit layered with dried herbs, cigar-box and sandalwood. It has just enough tannins and acidity to frame in the fruit. The 2006 Secolo has great balance and although having slight astringency in it’s youth, it can be enjoyed right now with marbled steaks and savory stews.

<p>Meaning &ldquo;century&rdquo; in Italian, Secolo is a Bordeaux-style blended red wine. This wine showcases some of the best vineyard lots for Bordeaux varietals in Sonoma County. In 2006 was a cooler, longer vintage for Sonoma County, with elevated tannins, but good varietal Cabernet and Merlot flavors.</p>
