Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

A classy effort, firm and focused on spicy, loamy earth and dusty currant flavors. Holds and gains depth, ending with crushed rock, green olive and cedary cigar box notes. Fine-grained tannins.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92(+?)

(includes 9.5% petit verdot): Bright ruby. Aromas of black cherry, crushed blueberry, licorice and menthol, lifted by a note of cinnamon. Dense, supple and juicy, with very good purity to the flavors of crushed dark berries. But a cool rather than a full-blown style of this wine: today I find a hint of underlying minerality but not the typical warm loam and tobacco elements characteristic of this site. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and excellent length. This will need at least a few years to open and expand in the bottle.

About This Producer


The flagship offering from Seavey is their Cabernet Sauvignon known for its classic Bordeaux styling, richness, and longevity, with some vintages achieving 30-40 years of cellaring potential. This wine is built for strength and ageability, with long macerations and three years of barrel and bottle aging prior to release.

Seavey wines are very well-received by critics and fans alike, and since the inaugural 1990 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, all Seavey Vineyard grapes are used exclusively for the estate produced wines.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
