Sebastiani Sonoma County Zinfandel 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Sonoma County Zinfandel displays a dark garnet color. The aroma is full of raspberry fruit with shades of vanilla and brown sugar. In the mouth, lush raspberry fruit plays slowly over the tongue followed by hints of herbs de Provence and a soft finish.

  To Don Sebastiani and Sons, family is clearly an important aspect of winemaking. While Don Sebastiani and Sons wasn’t founded until 2001, Samuele Sebastiani created a winery in 1904, and started growing the company, as well as the town of Sonoma. Over the years, the winery changed hands many times, but it always stayed within the family. By 2000, the winery was producing eight million cases of wine a year. However, at that time, Don Sebastiani sold many of the assets and kept only the family brand and the Sonoma winery and vineyards. Though he stepped down as CEO and Chairman in 2000, that wasn’t the end for him. In 2001, he and his sons, Donny and August, founded Don Sebastiani and Sons, eventually growing production back up to two million cases annually. Today, Greg Kitchens and Michelle McClendon, winemakers for Don Sebastiani and Sons, strive to produce high-end wine at affordable prices. They don’t just source grapes from California - they’ve also formed partnerships to create Australian and Chilean blends, further expanding the company’s reach and complexity. Read less

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

Bright and a little spicy, good dark juicy fruit on the finish. A hint of sweetness, too.

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.
