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 Seaglass. Ripe cherry, strawberry and raspberry flavors are complemented by earthy richness, good acidity and a supple mouthfeel. This is received a 92 point score and a Gold Medal in the Critics Challenge Wine Competition and it scored 94 points in the Ultimate Wine Challenge. They called it a "Great Value" and said "Pretty aromas of flowers and cherries reveal just a hint of earthiness underneath. Bright and juicy on the palate, the medium body is full of violets and roses followed by sun baked earth and a finish full of juicy Bing cherries. Delightful." A perpetual "Best Buy" and our most popular Pinot Noir!
