Linda rated this wine as 93/100
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2007 Sebastiani Merlot has intense aromas of black currant, figs, smoked meat, toasted oak and vanilla. It is medium bodied, integrated, with balanced acidity and grippy tannins (decant for 30 min) and with a medium to long, smooth finish. It is a sipper and will go well with food; drink now – 2018. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts – recommended based on both value and quality. Tasted March/13.

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of raspberries, burnt sugar, currants, and kirsch liqueur followed closely by leather, iron, dried tobacco, and singed applewood on the surprisingly long finish. At $17, this wine is well within reach, and is worth buying 6-12 bottles for everyday drinking. 89+ points. - Rachel (ottawawinejournal.com)

Natalie's Review

Sebastiani Merlot 2007, Sonoma County, California, United States: Classic merlot at a good price. Black plum, some smoke and a hint of herbal mint. Full-bodied and ultra-supple and smooth like soft jazz. Pair with grilled pork chops and mellow conversation. Drink: 2013-2016. 219162 13.50% D 750 mL  $17.00 Score: 89/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
