Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from Sebastiani is very good. It opens with an attractive black cherry bouquet with hints of vanilla oak and blueberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe black cherry with notes of cassis. I also detected hints of vanilla oak and toffee. The finish is dry and its tannins are nicely prolonged. This rich wine would pair very nicely with a duck breast. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2015 Gravel Bed Red is a harmonious expression of the gravely vineyard sites from a warmer vintage. Deep ruby with purple hues, this wine is dominated with peppery spice, currant, cherry, and coconut on the nose. The entry is smooth and loaded with blackberry, underbrush, raspberry and black tea flavors. The nice structure is framed by elegant tannins leading to the lingering finish.
