Seavey Vineyard, based in the St. Helena region of Napa, California, produces wines using the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay varietals.
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon I tasted utilized 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Petite Verdot. The wine was aged in French oak for approximately 19 months and carried an ABV of 14.5%.
This was a very uninspiring bottle of wine.
My sampling was a PNP.
Taking a sip, I found black fruit, with black currant and plum being the strongest. The overall taste was very uncoordinated (I never thought I would use that word to describe a wine), things weren’t moving in unison. They were almost battling each other. The wine was fairly tight and didn’t open up much.
The finish was brief and brought nothing with it.
This bottle had an inordinate amount of sediment (I could have made a small sculpture with it). This wasn’t a very pleasurable bottle of wine.
The wine was discounted at $55. It retails online for $55 to $72. At the $55 level, there are many better options available. I’d avoid this one.
