Seaglass 2012 Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara
Winner of a Gold Medal at the Critics Challenge Wine Competition and a Silver Medal from the California State Fair
Grapes for this Seaglass Pinot Noir are sourced from the Los Alamos Vineyard in Santa Barbara. The vineyard dates back to the early days of Santa Barbara viticulture. Planted in 1974, it was one of the first five vineyards planted in Santa Barbara County. The others include Bien Nacido, Sierra Madre, and Firestone. Only adding to its lore, Los Alamos Vineyard was the birthplace of Au Bon Climat in a humble dairy barn in 1982. Los Alamos has a very cool climate that allows the fruit to reach full ripeness at low alcohol and perfect balance. It grows great Pinot Noir which you’ll know with your first sip of this 2012 Seaglass. Ripe cherry, strawberry and raspberry flavors are complemented by earthy richness, good acidity and a supple mouthfeel. To find a Santa Barbara Pinot like this under $15 is truly remarkable.

    This is a decent, but unremarkable pinot noir -- it suffers from what all moderately priced California wines suffer from: as a varietal, with no special climatological or other terroir considerations, the wine lacks nuance.

                      First time I tried this wine. I am used to the stronger Pinot's. A little on the light side for me but is a good daily wine to have, light enough to have with any food group. Clean finish!

                        Hard to find a reliable smooth Santa Barbara pinot in this price range. First time purchasing this wine and will likely do so again.
