Plenty of flavor in this unoaked Chardonnay, which the winery says comes from an Oakville vineyard. It’s packed with pineapples and lemondrop candy, with fine acidity and a touch of mineral.
This is the kind of wine that negociant Don Sebastiani & Sons produces so well. For an everyday price, you get a pretty nice Cabernet, dry and spicy, with a good punch of berry fruit.
Here’s a good, everyday-style Merlot. It’s dry and medium-bodied, with pleasant flavors of black cherries, black currants and oak, finished with a savory edge of tannins. Shows class beyond its price.
