2019 SeaGlass Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 SeaGlass Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon

¥2,970 (incl. tax)

While the Central Coast appellation may conjure a vision of vineyards shrouded in fog, in fact, much of the region is blessed with a Mediterranean climate that’s warm and dry yet moderated by the nearby Pacific Ocean. In the warmer areas, such as around Paso Robles, a reputation has been growing for Rhone, Italian, Spanish, and even Portuguese grape varieties. Nevertheless, Cabernet is the most widely-planted variety. Well-drained gravelly and loamy soils provide Cabernet with great concentration, and the region’s long growing season and dry climate mean that rain rarely spoils the harvest of this late-ripening variety. The Seaglass approach to making Cabernet is to preserve the rich flavor and bright acidity of the fruit. This means fermentation in stainless steel tanks, followed by aging in French and American oak barrels. For additional color, acidity, and structure, the blend includes 3% Petite Verdot. Decant this wine for an hour or so and note how the plum and cherry fruit and notes of spice develop in the glass. It’s a much more complex wine than the affordable price would suggest!

Winery


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.
