Sebastiani Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

This medium to dark garnet-colored wine has black olive and black cherry aromas with mocha and vanilla from barrel aging. Medium bodied but richly textured, it shows the strength of Cabernet Sauvignon on the palate, yet with rich, choco-rasberry fruit thanks to extended hang time. It doesn't finish with aggressive tannins thanks to early tannin fining and blending, rather with again mocha and mint despite the cooler vintage. This structured Cabernet Sauvignon will develop nicely through the summer of 2009, but will certainly improve with additional bottle age. It is a more "masculine" version of Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon, yet not rough around the edges with elegance and complexity.

A subdued, rich and chewy youngster, full-bodied, offering currant, blackberry, cedar, anise and graphite, ending with chewy tannins. Drink now through 2016. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Here's a solid Cabernet with extra features of complexity and interest. It's bone dry, with softly gentle tannins and rich, forward flavors of cherries, currants, herbs and cedar. Very pretty and polished, at a fair price.
