Sebastiani Sonoma Chardonnay 2009
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
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.
Most Sherries are dry and meant to pair with food but the American society has traditionally focused on the sweet ones. Sherry comes from one place in the entire world, Andalucía, where the soil and unique seasonal changes give an unsurpassed character to the wines. The many styles change with the process of production, not really the grape, though certain styles are reserved for different grapes. The main grapes are Palomino, Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria.
Pedro Ximénez can make some amazing sweet Sherries. Cream is the sweetest, darkest style of sherry, except sometimes Pedro Ximénez is sweeter.
The rest of the styles are dry and dependent on the action of flor, benevolent film-forming yeasts able to sustain a veil that floats on the surface of a wine.
FINO & MANZANILLA are the lightest styles and are meant to be drunk young.
AMONTILLADO happens when a Fino’s layer of flor fades and the wine starts to oxidize. Quite simply it is an aged Fino and has a darker color and richer palate.
When flor yeast dies unexpectedly, the result is Palo Cortado. Palo Cortado can behave like an Amontillado on the palate but often shows a great balance of richness and delicacy.
Oloroso never develops flor but is oxidized for five to twenty-five years and become aromatic and strong like a fine bourbon.
