BOLD Wine Co Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Drawn from vineyards on the Monterey peninsula, BOLD Wine Co. is a second and new-ish project from Seabold Cellars. Established in 2014 by Chris Miller, MS and winemaker Peter Figge, Seabold was founded. We really love their wines for two simple facts: they are delicious (duh), and their mission mirrors ours at DECANT: “that everyone should have access to delicious and balanced wines that speak to their place of origin.”
Chris is a Master Sommelier who spent years as a fine dining sommelier in New Orleans and Los Angeles. Peter knew from a young age that he wanted to be in the vineyards making wine; he studied Viticulture & Enology at UC Davis and gained experience at historic Napa Valley wineries before going out on his own. What’s fun about the BOLD wines is that they uniquely capture the, ahem, bold and fruity character of wines from places like Paso Robles, but unusually, also reflect the moderate alcohol and higher acidity levels of the climate that are often ignored by some Paso and Monterey wineries.
