Winemaker's Notes:

Cherries and plum aromas unfold in the glass and blend nicely with the essence of incense and herbal notes. This same bouquet carries over to flavors of the same, but with the addition of black olives and a touch of cocoa.

With its full body and medium tannins, this wine would be perfectly suited to pair with a nice juicy steak.

My Notes:

About Lockwood Vineyard:

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.
