Country: California
Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon 100%
Vineyards: The gnarled, old vines planted back in 1961 at the estate`s vineyard document Sebastiani’s history as a pioneer of Cabernet Sauvignon in Sonoma County. Since its inception in the 1980s, our Sonoma County bottling has set a benchmark for quality and character, earning high scores and praise from the press, trade and consumers. The wine owes much of its success to superior vineyards located in Sonoma County’s top AVAs for Cabernet Sauvignon including Sonoma Valley and Alexander Valley.

Vintage: The 2019 growing season started later than usual in many California wine regions. A wet spring followed by cool temperatures allowed the grapes to mature gradually. Cool temperatures continued throughout the growing season resulting in longer hang time and lower sugar yields. Vintners are praising the full flavours, fresh acidity and superb balance of the 2019 vintage.

Winemaking:  The grapes were de-stemmed and crushed to a tank for a two-day cold soak prior to inoculation. During fermentation, the wine was pumped over its skins two to three times a day in closed-top stainless steel tanks. After pressing, the wine was racked to a mixture of barrels and stainless steel for a full malolactic fermentation and then aged for 16 months until bottling in August 2021.

Winemaker’s Notes: The 2019 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of red cherry, Christmas spice and savoury herbs. The palate is medium-bodied with lush flavours of bright red fruits and lively spice. Fresh acidity and medium tannins are present on the smooth finish. — Mark Beaman, Winemaker

The Grape
The most famous red wine grape in the world and one of the most widely planted.

It is adaptable to a wide range of soils, although it performs particularly well on well-drained, low-fertile soils. It has small, dusty, black-blue berries with thick skins that produce deeply coloured, full-bodied wines with notable tannins. Its spiritual home is the Médoc and Graves regions of Bordeaux where it thrives on the well-drained gravel-rich soils producing tannic wines with piercing blackcurrant fruits that develop complex cedarwood and cigar box nuances when fully mature.

The grape is widely planted in California where Cabernet Sauvignon based wines are distinguished by their rich mixture of cassis, mint, eucalyptus and vanilla oak. It is planted across Australia and with particular success in Coonawarra where it is suited to the famed Terra Rossa soil. In Italy barrique aged Cabernet Sauvignon is a key component in Super Tuscans such as Tignanello and Sassicaia, either on its own or as part of a blend with Sangiovese.
