    About This Wine

    "John Sebastiano was the first wine from Siduri I ever tried, so maybe I have a little bias but it is my number one favorite every time. I love it on its own, but my favorite dinner course to pair it with is pasta with a red sauce." - Jamie Pipkin, Assistant Wine Club Manager

    "Five years with Siduri and anytime I'm asked what single vineyard I like most it is always John Sebastiano. Deep fruit, savory spices, and balanced acidity makes it perfect on its own, but delicious and easy to pair with any meal." - Kieran Murphy, Estate Manager

    Effusive blackberry and blueberry jam aromatics are complemented by toffee and forest floor notes in this not-so-shy wine. Seductively juicy and rich on the palate, the bramble fruits are tightly wound by brisk acidity and lush tannins. Amazingly full bodied for a modest alcohol of 14.2%, it’s very tempting to put too fine a point on it – this Pinot Noir is just pure deliciousness. This low-vigor site allows for extended maturation on the vine in the cool Santa Rita Hills, and 2018 allowed us to push ripeness without high sugars or losing acidity – the results in the glass are very satisfying.
