About Seaglass 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles
We love Seaglass Wines. The name is a metaphor for the beautiful, one-of-a-kind gems that the sand, sea and wind create...from grapes. This, their Cabernet Sauvignon like all of their wines reflects outstanding value for the price. An exceptionally warm region still influenced by the reach of the Pacific Ocean, Paso Robles is ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon, thanks to a wide variation in day-to-night temperatures, diverse soils and an extended growing season.
A minimalist approach to winemaking helped preserve the rich flavor and bright acidity of our Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Following fermentation in stainless steel tanks, this wine was aged in French and American oak barrels, striking the perfect balance between varietal flavor, crisp acidity and oak character.
The final blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 2% Petite Sirah. The wine opens with distinct aromas of black plum and cherry and spice. The palate is rich and complex, with ripe flavors of blackberry and black cherry, framed by hints of spicy oak on the finish. Exquisitely balanced with vibrant acidity.
