More firm and structured, the 2011 Sestina is one of the few 2011s that will benefit from short-term cellaring. Made from a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc that saw 20 months in 70% new French oak, it offers medium to full-bodied richness, a stacked mid-palate and integrated acidity to go with plenty of currant, blackberry, charcoal and smoked-earth aromas and flavors. Give it another 2-3 years and plan on drinking bottles through 2026. 93+ - Jeb Dunnuck
