The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of California’s coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime air’s persistent movement inland and seaward. The ocean’s influence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool at night, while preserving the grape’s natural acidity. For Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 vintage was characterized by average winter rainfall, followed by a cool spring and warm summer temperatures. This vintage produced darkly- colored Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe, pure varietal flavors. Our passionate commitment to our Cypress Vineyards red wines is to preserve and showcase the alluring black currant and cherry fruit flavors resplendent in grapes grown in the Central Coast.
The 2018 Cypress Vineyards Zinfandel has a medium-dark color with a youthful purple hue. Black cherry, cola nut and brambly aromas turn to notes of cranberry and pomegranate on the palate. This wine delivers intense red fruit flavors with a soft, bright finish.
