Sebastiani Zinfandel 2016

This cuvée of Sebastiani Zinfandel features fruit from Lodi, which is arguably California's premier region for Zinfandel, with the remainder of the fruit sourced from Lake County, northwest of Napa County. The blend is predominantly Zinfandel (75%), but a portion of Petite Sirah was blended in to add more colour along with more white pepper and spicy aromas. The Sebastiani Zinfandel is a wonderful deep red colour in the glass. It 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. True to its variety, this Zinfandel has enough acidity and tannins to frame the delectable fruit. More of a Claret style than a raisiny, overripe wine, the smooth, soft tannins round out the palate for a beautiful, lingering finish.

Gold - Sommelier Wine Awards 2019

Elegance with richness assured this wine’s place on the Gold List. ‘An excellent
wine,’ said team leader Angela Reddin. For Markus Dilger of Dilger Sommelier
Selection the wine brought a heady mix of ‘plum, date and dark cherries, with
earthy notes of leather and sweet cinnamon spice’, while the palate was ‘well
balanced and long, finishing with chocolatey smoothness’. There are ‘subtle
notes of strawberry jam with clotted cream and scones’, mused Michael Fiducia
of The Royal Automobile Club, admiring the ‘elegant nuances on the palate’.
