Sebastiani Cabernet Sauvignon 2002:
Fragrant nose of berries, vanilla, and oak
Strawberry and raspberry on the palate
Nice layers taper with a polished finish
We have praised the 2001 and this wine is even better! I find it difficult to locate a high quality Cabernet Sauvignon from California for under $20, so this is really a great deal at $12. That was a sale price, so a more typical price might be $15. What a buy!
This wine has nice balance and it's not too tannic. It reveals itself in interesting layers of fruit and oak that are quite nice. If you like a Cab that pairs well with food but still delivers that fragrant and fruity quality typical of California, then this should be on your list. Raise a glass!
