Sebastiani is one of the most reliable producers of American wine. This special bottling is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel and is aged for 14 months in French Oak. The bouquet on opening is rather gentle with fresh cherries and berry fruit.
In the mouth right before swallowing there’s a cocoa, vanilla and oak with dark berry flavors wonderfully balanced.
With some breathing and a little warming up from cellar temperature this is pure blackberry juice with eucalyptus high lights. The feel of this wine is awesome, elegant and just really good.
My beloved brought this wine back to me from a trip to California. It cost around $28 I believe. This is the kind of wine that spoils you! But spoil away and raise a glass.
