Winemaker's Notes:

We have evolved an elegant, supple, and approachable style of Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a reflection of the unique qualities of our vineyard as well as specialized winemaking techniques that emphasize fruitiness. The inclusion of Bordeaux varieties broadens the flavor spectrum, adding deeper structure in the Cabernet. Refosco, our blending ace-in-the-hole since 1991, provides tannin, color, and a slight hint of orange peel. This Cabernet Sauvignon can be enjoyed now in its youth or cellared for several years for additional complexity.

Alcohol: 13.9% by volume

About Lockwood:

Located in Monterey County, on a 1850 acre parcel of calcarious soil (called "Lockwood Shaly Loam"), Lockwood Vineyard was planted in 1981, and started producing in 1989. Lockwood is dedicated to estate bottling and, as winemaker Stephan Pessagno puts it, "wine that is fruit-forward, has good acidity and balance, and complements the best of life's food and wine experiences." The temperature fluctuations-morning temperatures can be 50 degrees and mid-day temperatures 100 or more degrees-make Lockwood able to mature both cool climate and warm climate grape varieties with unprecedented success.
