Central Coast, California
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 grapes’ natural acidity and flavor. For Cypress Vineyards Merlot, the 2017 vintage was characterized by high winter rainfall, followed by a warm spring and moderate summer temperatures. Our passionate commitment to Cypress Vineyards red wines is to preserve and showcase the great cherry and currant fruit flavors resplendent in these grapes grown on the Central Coast.
