This Châteauneuf-style wine is jammy, with black stone fruits, berries and dark chocolate, and a sweet black cherry core, but it has body and tannins to lend it weight. The winemaker suggests pairing it with cassoulet. New from Don Sebastiani & Sons.
Along with life’s other mysteries is how Don Sebastiani & Sons put out wines of this quality, at this price. This Merlot is dry, rich and fruity, with the balance and harmony of wines costing far more. Enjoy it for its chocolate and blackberry flavors.
On the palate of this lighter-bodied Syrah, jammy, fruit-sweet flavors of blackberries are offset with briary, chalky accents. Starts off with sandalwood, clove and ripe fruit on the nose; finishes crisp.
Dark, young and jammy, and so fresh in grapy flavors and acids, it tastes like it came straight from the fermenting tank. Clean, dry and filled with blackberry, cocoa and coffee flavors. Good value in a fun wine.
At six bucks a pop, you can’t go wrong with this rich, smooth, dry Cabernet. It shows appealing flavors of blackberries, blueberries, cherries and chocolate fudge, and although it’s a little light, that richly satisfying fruit carries the day.
