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
Grapes were sourced from some of California’s best regions: Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles and Lodi. The addition of Petite Sirah replicates the historic “field blends” of California’s first grape growers, contributing colour and spice. The 2010 vintage was fairly cool, allowing a long growing season to riper the larger-than-average crop. The fruit was able to accumulate flavours and concentration early in the growing season, and many vineyards experienced the earliest ripening and harvest dates in the last five years.

WINERY
Grapes were cold-soaked for three days, then pressed just before the end of fermentation. The wine was aged in a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral American oak barrels.

TASTE
Very smooth and juicy, with ripe black fruit and no hard edges – a gentle giant.
