Sebastiani Zinfandel, California.


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.

Tasting Notes: This Zinfandel displays inviting aromas of raspberry preserves, blackberry, and sweet spice. Dark, brambly berry flavors lead on the palate with hints of white pepper, and spice. More of a Claret style than a blockbuster, the smooth, soft tannins round out the palate for a beautiful, lingering finish.
