2016 SEBASTIANI GRAVEL BED RED SONOMA COUNTY

$40.00 $26.99 $26.99

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.

The texture is full and mellow, enlivened by fresh mineral acidity that provides a sandstone-like abrasion to the finish. Pour it with pork rillettes or other charcuterie.”

“Our 2016 Gravel Bed Red is a harmonious expression of gravely vineyard sites from a moderately warm vintage. Its deep ruby red color leads into forward aromas of cherry liquor, tobacco leaf, wet stone minerality and a hint of oak. Dark fruit flavors attack the palate predominated by blackberry, black cherry, herbs de Provence and dried leaves. The impressive palate offers enough tannin and acidity to reign in the generous fruit…”
