2017 Sebastiani Zinfandel, Sonoma County
Aromas of black plum and pepper give way to the juicy, bright red fruit on the palate. Our 2017 Sonoma County Zinfandel is fruit forward with lingering jam fruit flavors that finish with a nice vanilla and clove backbone.
88% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah
October 13 to October 30, 2017
After harvest, the fruit was cold soaked to enhance the color and flavor while avoiding harsh tannins. The individual lots were racked once and put into a combination of American oak barrels (24% new), and three year old French and Hungarian oak.
