Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has a jammy cherry aroma infused with a slight toast. The flavor is full of bright cherries and is very soft in texture. It is an up-front, forward-style of Pinot Noir that is deliciously drinkable with only the slightest amount of oak seasoning to accent its luscious, deeply cherry-fruited characteristics.

"Very dense up front, with delectable aromas of plum cake, black cherry and vanilla. The palate is not enormous, but it's big enough to satisfy any lover of modern-style Pinot Noir. If there's a fault here, it's a buttery note to the finish."

About Sebastiani Sonoma Cask Cellars:

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.
