Winemaker's Notes:

With its dark crimson red color, the 2001 Sonoma County Merlot boasts blueberry and black cherry fruit aromas mixed with the flavors of black tea and toasted oak. Your mouth will delight in the black cherry and vanilla flavors. The finish is soft and supple. Stylistically, it is a riper, fuller-bodied Merlot due to the vintage conditions.

Founded in 1904 by Samuele Sebastiani, the winery is best known for its Cherryblock Cabernet Sauvignon, one of Sonoma County's most coveted wines.
