Wine Review: This opaque and very dark purple colored red blend from Sebastiani opens with fragrant boysenberry bouquet with a hint of black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very well balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle black cherry with notes of boysenberry and gentle oak. The finish is dry and its gentle well managed fine oak tannins drift away nicely. This wine is very food friendly and would pair well with pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2007 Secolo delivers bold aromas of blackberry, blueberry, sandalwood and dried herbs. The character of the vintage encouraged us to emphasize the elegance of the fruit by using less new oak than in the past. The palate is a ripe, concentrated mélange of black fruits laced with vanilla and hints of mocha. The wine finishes fairly soft with just enough tannins to frame the generous fruit. While this 2007 is surprisingly accessible now it will continue to evolve and improve over the next five years!
