Sebastiani Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) The wine’s sheer depth is telegraphed by the deep, opaque, ruby red color. The aromatics and flavors are what you would expect from the vintage, region and variety: blackberry, black tea, baked berry pie, chocolate, raspberries and olives. While the wine possesses formidable heft, it is also smooth, silky and beautifully balanced.

Expert Reviews

    11% Merlot; 8.5% Malbec; 3.5% Petit Verdot. The unqualified star of the current Sebastiani line-up of new Cabernets, this very rich offering is brimming with both oaky sweetness and deep, well-defined fruit. Its themes of ripe currants are laced with lots of vanilla, cocoa and cream, and its plush palatal feel is followed up with a measure of trim tannins. If thoroughly enjoyable now, it comes with a recommendation of three or four years of age. GOOD VALUE
