Sebastiani Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 Wine Review (NW)

Raspberry, blackberry, and milk chocolate on the nose
Smooth, velvety texture, and a good backbone
Some oak and vanilla on a finish that tapers nicely

After another bottle of this terrific wine, I'm even more impressed. While I've had this wine a half dozen times in the past few months, this time was different. I didn't even get my first glass until the bottle was half empty. Not only that, it had been sitting on the kitchen counter with a wine stopper in in for two days because my wife had popped the cork while I was away. Regardless, it was delicious. And it's certainly an added bonus that it seems to have kitchen counter longevity. I stocked up on this for just $12/bottle, which is $5 below the suggested retail price. Raise a glass!

The 2002 Sebastiani cabernet sauvignon sonoma county is off the charts! By far the best wine for you buck out right now. I had the 2003 version and it was not even close! Do you think the 2003 version will mature and be as good as the 2002?

Did try that wine over the weekend, amazing! Where did you stack up at 12$ per bottle?

Many thanks
