Deep purple and ruby highlights, followed by intense, concentrated aromas of blackberry, vanilla and baking spices. Waves of rich black fruit wash over the palate, with complex layers of cedar and tobacco.

Winemaker Notes
After harvest, the grapes were crushed, de-stemmed and hand sorted using our“micro-crush” equipment to eliminate any stem pieces (jags) and botrytised berries.We also did a cold soak and saignée to enhance color and concentration. After pressing,each lot was blended or egg-white fined depending on characteristics. The wine was aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, 77% of which were new.

Vineyard Notes
Since its creation, Cherryblock has been our flagship wine at Sebastiani. The majority of the fruit (85%) came from our original Old Vines block of Cabernet Sauvignon planted in 1961.The wine also features a portion of fruit from younger vines on our estate. Small amounts of Malbec and Merlot were sourced from nearby sites with similar climates and soils.Our goal is to create a benchmark Cabernet that possesses the elegance, structure and terroir-driven aromatics only found in Cherryblock.
