Silky smooth with velvet tannins and lots of dark cherries and sweet oak. Nice subtle but lingering finish

Very ripe and forward packed with cherry vanilla bold and fleshy fruits. Ripe very easy texture and tannins yet lacking the structure and muscular power of vintages past. Delicious yes, outstanding no.

This one really killed it last night. The last few bottles of this resulted in a bit of disappointment, primarily because of QPR, but not this one!

Smooth tannins, just enough acidity keep it fresh. Nice with grilled T-Bone steak.

RP says 95, and this is certainly special. But the QPR is not great.

Well made and drinking wonderful. Sebastiani Cherry Block will not be the same now that winemaker Mark Lyon is leaving after nearly 40 years at the helm.

Very, very good. Nice and round, though without the body of a cab from the other valley. I was hoping for more.

Beautiful wine. Flavors more integrated in this 2010 than the 2012 I posted previously.
