2018 SeaGlass Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

2018 SeaGlass Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

¥2,970 (incl. tax)

A wine that enchants with its light body and delicate red fruit, Seaglass Pinot Noir is characteristically of its place: Santa Barbara County. The Los Alamos Vineyard, one of the oldest and most illustrious vineyards in Santa Barbara County, is in an area of rolling hills and east-west running valleys that funnel cool fogs and breezes from the ocean to inland towns. Grapes develop bright flavors as they ripen slowly; they also begin ripening early because the sandy soils radiate warmth. Seaglass has produced an elegant, light-bodied Pinot Noir that shows plenty of bright red fruit character without heaviness or excessive alcohol. Mild cheeses, grilled salmon or lamb would pair well with SeaGlass Pinot Noir.

Winery Description

They say that “life’s too short for cheap wine.” But who really has the energy (or the pocketbook) to drink only the most artisanal wines? In fact, we’re often in situations where we can’t simply open our high-scoring, well-aged, collectable wines - a weeknight, after a soccer game or when a friend just happens to pop in. Named for the jewel-like, naturally-polished glass stones you might discover on a beach, SeaGlass wines are made for good times with friends or family, when an inexpensive but enjoyable wine can add surprise and joy to an otherwise mundane occasion. They are lively, flavorful, and well-made; easy to drink and “anxiety-free” to open. Part of the Trinchero Family Estates portfolio of wineries, SeaGlass produces Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from excellent vineyards in Santa Barbara and Monterey, near the Pacific coast, where the climate is cool, the growing season long, and the wines fruity and crisp. These wines are perfect with food. Medium-bodied, full of flavor and bright acidity, they match a wide range of Asian, Mediterranean, European and Latin American cuisines.
