Sebastiani Cherryblock Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Valley|
Medium to deep ruby, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Cherryblock Vineyard is intensely scented of cassis, baked black plum, blueberry coulis and red cherry preserves with touches of allspice, incense, cedar, dried leaves and warm earth plus a streak of graphite. The palate is medium to full-bodied with still youthfully wound fruit, a firm, grainy texture and juicy freshness to lift the long finish. 1,210 cases produced.
Slightly high-pitched, with cherry and red licorice notes holding sway, backed by light violet and singed vanilla hints. Drink now through 2023. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,210 cases made.
