Winemaker Notes

This is one of the most unique vineyards I have ever seen. Literally vines planted in pure sand! A portion of the vineyard is planted to the Mission grape, which we do not take, and the entire vineyard has sporadic Rosa Peru plants mixed in. The Rosa Peru grapes are giant pink things but they have almost no water or flavor so don’t really effect things either way. This vineyard produces delicious ripe fruit flavors with just enough natural acidity to balance the wine out.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WW 92
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
For decades, artisan wineries throughout the world—especially the United States—have experimented with Mourvèdre in hopes that they could take this pedestrian grape variety to a higher level. Except for only one area—Bandol—where it truly called home and had performed admirably, the story was the same—this was just a good little red table wine, and that is all. The 2014 Seam has succeeded to change that notion and produced one of the best Mourvèdres in the marketplace. The wine, showing ripe fruit and dried cocoa powder, is exhibiting the perfect combination of the grape's best traits. Drinking well now. (Tasted: August 24, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Seam, California
Seam Wines began with the 2008 vintage as a way to bring outstanding wines to the public for everyday occasions. The truth of the matter is that I am about as big of a snob as you can get, so if I can bottle wines that make me happy, and do so at an affordable price, we should be on to something cool.

All of our wines are low in alcohol. I like this because sometimes I enjoy being able to consume a glass of wine and not be foggy headed. There’s a time and place for everything right? I also want the wines to be crisp, fresh, and vibrant because this is the style that I most enjoy both for a single glass, and with a meal. There is never any new wood used in Seam Wines because it just isn’t needed. Barrels are important and delicious in many styles of wines, but not these…see the fresh and crisp statement above.

Central Coast

View all products

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Mourvedre

Full of color, ripe fruit, plenty of texture and earthy goodness, Mourvèdre is an important grape in many key regions in the south of France, as well as in Spain and the New World. Mourvèdre is actually of Spanish provenance (there known as Monastrell or Mataro) and is the key variety in Alicante, Jumilla and Yecla. It truly thrives, however, in Provence’s Bandol region, where it shines on its own as a single varietal red and in Southern Rhône where it palys a major part in blends . It is also of great importance in the Southern Rhône alongside Grenache and Syrah—and in California and Australia, as a single varietal wine or in Rhône blends.

In the Glass

At their finest, Mourvèdre wines are robust and full of brambly red and black fruit, and aromas and flavors of herbs, leather, earth, dark chocolate and licorice. Well-aged examples can show an impressive degree of elegance and an attractive perfume. In blends with Grenache and Syrah, Mourvèdre provides fleshy texture, tannic structure and deep color.

Perfect Pairings

This earthy Mediterranean variety loves rustic food—think cassoulet, wild boar ragu or smoky ribs. Mourvèdre’s tannins are bold but not bitter, lending both weight and texture.

Sommelier Secret

Mourvèdre used to have significant plantings in California, but the vine lost popularity during the 20th century in favor of other varieties. However, in the 1980s, a group of California winemakers inspired by the wines of the Rhône Valley have been working to bring the variety back into the spotlight. Plantings have since increased and Rhône blends are now a highly-regarded specialty of the Central Coast.
