2016 SEBASTIANI GRAVEL BED RED SONOMA COUNTY
Sebastiani Gravel Bed Red celebrates gravel-laden soils and the unmistakable footprint they leave on each vine. Gravel is a common denominator in many of the world’s most excellent wines. It imparts increased drainage properties, resulting in palpable flavor-intensity, rocky minerality, and overall balance. This wine highlights each of these distinct characteristics and serves them in an open-knit, velvety style that’s a joy to drink.
Winemaker David Nakaji formed the 2016 Gravel Bed Red around two esteemed volcanic and rocky sites in Sonoma Valley; Cherryblock and Lyon. The winery’s single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Cherryblock goes for around $125, which lends volumes to the value you get in a bottle of Gravel Bed Red at $27.
The 2016 vintage artfully unites 44% Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Syrah, and Zinfandel, all barrel-aged 18 months. If you’re on the lookout for a rich and velvety red with an abundance of character and one that’s ready to drink now, this is it.
