Sivas-Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


SKU 23390


Our 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold wine showcasing aromas of blackberry cobbler, mission fig, sorghum molasses and a touch of cigar box. It unfolds with ripe flavors of blackberry, black plum and black cherry coupled with cocoa and dusty cedar notes. Extended aging in both French and American oak lends subtle hints of vanilla and cardamom. Ripe, velvety tannins are smooth across the mid-palate leading to a pleasant, lingering finish. This substantial Cabernet Sauvignon pairs nicely with grilled loin chops or a savory lamb stew.

Wine EnthusiastThis brand is from the resourceful Don Sebastiani & Sons of Sonoma County. It's a great example of the company's ability to find superb fruit and raise it into fine wine, and then sell it at a fair price. The wine is rich and pleasurable in blackberries and cherries, with a fine overlay of smoky oak.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon (22,000 cases produced) reveals a healthy dark ruby/purple-tinged color, wonderfully pure creme de cassis fruit aromas, soft berry flavors with a hint of wood, and a round, medium-bodied, velvety finish. Readers should seek out this very good, inexpensive Cabernet Sauvignon, and enjoy it over the next 5-7 years.
