Winemaker's Notes:

Number 76 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004!

Our Sebastiani Sonoma Chardonnay has a medium golden color with aromas of green apple, lemon zest, vanilla and roasted nuts (from the oak barrels). It is medium bodied with intense "Golden Delicious" apple fruit flavors. The finish is soft with hints of caramel and bread toast. Enjoyable now in its youth, it will develop more hazelnut and honeyed complexities over the next three years while retaining its fruit.

About Sebastiani Sonoma Cask Cellars:

With over a century of winemaking experience in Sonoma, Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery focuses on crafting small lots of super-premium wines from the great growing regions of Sonoma County, becoming one of California’s most highly praised and awarded wineries for its Bordeaux and Burgundian varietals.

With the spotlight on single vineyards and specific sub-appellations such as Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, Carneros and Russian River Valley, Sebastiani produces wine under the Sonoma County, Appellation Selection and Proprietary Selection designations. Founded in 1904 by Samuele Sebastiani, the winery is best known for its Cherryblock Cabernet Sauvignon, one of Sonoma County's most coveted wines. The winery is located just blocks from Sonoma's historic downtown plaza and offers historical tours as well as extensive picnic grounds and hospitality venues.
