2017 Sebastiani Gravel Bed Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County
Blackberry and dark cherry fruit flavors interlaced with graphite and bergamot tea dance on the palate. Hints of cedar and espresso compliment the soft tannins and lengthy dried herb finish.
79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Malbec
14 months in French oak
After harvest, we cold soaked a number of the lots to maximize color and flavor extraction. All of the grapes were fermented warm and the light press portion was also incorporated and added more tannin and richness.
