Sabastiani Sonoma County Merlot 2016
92 points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2016 Merlot, medium to deep ruby in the glass, radiates scents of warm plum, black and red cherries, milk chocolate, cedar and sweet spices with nuances of graphite and dried herbs. It’s medium to full-bodied and lushly fruited, with a silky texture and great freshness on the long, chocolaty finish. 900 cases produced.
