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
Tart and juicy, with lively but modest cherry and spicy vanilla notes, and accents of fresh herb. Drink now. 8,000 cases made. -TF
Dark ruby in color with explosive cranberry and raspberry fruit aromas and flavors. Complex spice is evident on the aroma. The wine is framed with smoky and vanilla oak.
An easygoing quaff, with jammy cherry rhubarb pie aromas and flavors and a spicy finish. Drink now.
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.
