A tribute to Samuele Sebastiani, this Petite Sirah is blended with 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot, most of the grapes from Lodi. It delivers a bigger-than-life glass of roasted plum and blueberry, bacon and earthy cedar. Soft and approachable now, the tannins are lushly present, the finish marked by toasty oak and vanilla.
