Sebastiani Sonoma County Zinfandel 2007
Editorial Reviews for Sebastiani Sonoma County Zinfandel
A touch of bacon fat greets the nose on this darkly, briary fruited, yet somewhat indistinct nose. There’s some gentle oak influence obvious here and the fruit leans towards the spicy, jammy blackberry/mulberry end of the spectrum. In the mouth this does feel like a zin though with gently wooly tannins and good acidity supporting modest levels of dark, briary berry fruit with a hint of crasins around the edges. The wine finishes with a sweet jammy tone and nicely stiff tannins on the moderately long finish. 86pts
External Reviews for Sebastiani Sonoma County Zinfandel
An easygoing quaff, with jammy cherry rhubarb pie aromas and flavors and a spicy finish. Drink now.
Tart and juicy, with lively but modest cherry and spicy vanilla notes, and accents of fresh herb. Drink now. 8,000 cases made. -TF
Aromas of raspberry and brown sugar, mixed with vanilla are detected in the nose. Raspberry fruit creeps over the tongue, followed by hints of herbs de Provence and a soft, pleasant, oaky finish.
This is the first Zin I can remember from the Loon. It's kind of on the rustic side, but rich in slightly sweet cherry and vanilla flavors with a drop of raspberry liqueur essence. High acidity makes it finish clean and bright.
Appealing if a bit rustic, with roasted sage and wild berry aromas and zesty yet tightly wound black cherry, cedar and forest flavors. Tannins grip the finish. Drink now through 2010.
