2021 SEAGLASS Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast

SEAGLASS Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast

¥3,520 (incl. tax)

While one may envision the vineyards of the Central Coast as hugging the coast while shrouded in fog, in fact, much of the region is blessed with a Mediterranean climate that’s warm and dry yet influenced by the nearby Pacific Ocean. In warmer areas, such as around Paso Robles, Rhone, Italian, Spanish, and even Portuguese grape varieties have been gaining traction. Nevertheless, Cabernet is the most widely planted variety. Well-drained gravelly and loamy soils stress the vines gently, and the dry climate keeps rain out of the picture during harvest. 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. At 13.5% ABV, this wine packs less of a punch than most California Cabs, making it easy to enjoy with a wider variety of lunch and dinner meals. 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 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.

A bouquet of black cherry and plum notes lift from the glass, while lively blackberry and cherry flavors play with dried herbs with hints of graphite lingering in the finish. Firm tannins provide excellent structure.
