Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Monterey County Merlot is a great example of its cool climate terroir. The inky, dark fruit features aromas and flavors of blackberry and cedar and has excellent acidity and moderate structure.

This is a great wine to pair with many red meat dishes.

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.
