Joe H Posted March 4, 2006 Share Posted March 4, 2006 I am sipping a glass of 2000 Sebastiani Cab as I type this. Several days ago I shared a bottle of 1999 Estancia Cab and the day before that 2000 Chateau St. Michelle Merlot. Last weekend I opened a bottle of Chateau Souverain '99 Merlot and the same night a bottle of their '99 cab. All were remarkably good for wine that cost, on sale, between $9 (Estancia and St. Michelle) and $13 (Chateau Souverain). Whatever one has heard about taking "middle of the road," fairly cheap wine and giving it a couple, three years of bottle age is true: it smooths the wine, adds a bit of depth and results in a wine that is really, in some cases, quite a bit better. I only bought a case of the 2000 Sebastiani; now I wish I had two or three left! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
