TASTE
Delicious, silky-smooth Cabernet with masses of blackberry, black cherry and raspberry fruit. Notes of olives and tea add savoury interest, while the deft balance and long length make it an extremely moreish wine.

PRODUCER
The Sebastiani family own one of the longest-established wineries in California. It was founded in 1904, and survived both Prohibition and the Great Depression to remain at the forefront of the Sonoma county winemaking. A century’s history seems not to have dented the company’s dynamism: it is one of the top hundred on-trade brands in the US and is growing sales substantially ahead of the market. The winemaker, Mark Lyon, has been with Sebastiani since 1979, so brings an intimate knowledge of the region and how to best express it in the bottle, with clarity of fruit, generosity of structure and sensitive use of oak.

VINEYARD
Half of the fruit came from the Lyon vineyard in Alexander Valley, with five other sites making up the remainder. This was the lowest-yielding vintage for thirty years.

WINERY
After a three-day cold soak, the fruit was crushed and fermented at relatively warm temperatures in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the individual lots were racked into new and one-year-old French, American and Hungarian oak barrels and aged for thirteen months.
