About Seaglass 2018 Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara
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 will know with your first sip of this Seaglass.
This was a Platinum Award winner in the 2021 Monterey International Wine Competition. Wine Review Online scored it 92 points saying "I challenge you to find a better Pinot Noir at this price point. Add in the fact that it’s widely available, and it might just become your house wine of the year. Cherry, cola, moderate oak toast, a supple grip and a long finish with an orange zest note – words not often said at this level. Go get ‘em."
