Sivas-Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
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.
