Sedna handcrafts their wines exclusively with estate grown grapes. Kate’s Vineyard is planted on rocky, well-drained soils that are part of an alluvial fan. The Bryant Family produces Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, but is probably best know for their excellent Syrah.
Tim Milos is the consulting winemaker for Sedna. Milos ages the wines in a combination of new and used French oak. The goal is to complement the natural fruit flavors, not to overwhelm them. True to their minimal-interventionist philosophy, the Bryants do not filter any of their wines.
The 2003 Sedna Syrah is a 100% varietal wine that was aged in French oak for 2 years. It has vibrant, red fruit flavors of spicy cherries and raspberries. 370 cases of this wine were produced.
The winery’s 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 15% Syrah. It was punched down by hand during fermentation and aged in French oak for 2 years before bottling. This is a balanced wine with beautiful, fruit forward flavors and spice. 350 cases were made.
