Rich, ruby red in colour with the aromas of dark cherry, strawberry and cinnamon spice. On the palate, bright red fruit and a touch of oak mixed with cinnamon to form a complex, well structured and deliciously long finish.
First released in 1989, Lockwood Vineyard was developed under the belief that world class estate produced wines are attainable through ideal vineyard location and quality winemaking. Lockwood Vineyard's founders, Paul Toeppen, Phil Johnson and Butch Lindley, who have cumulative vineyard management experience of over 90 years, first planted the large 1,850 acre San Lucas Vineyard in 1981 after concluding that the parcel was perfect for growing premium grapes. The vineyard is in a remote area nestled at the base of the Santa Lucia mountain range, in Monterey County, and is one of the largest premium estate vineyards in the world. Under the new ownership of Boisset Family Estates, Lockwood Vineyard continues to be devoted to producing high quality estate grown wines.
The grapes were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks retaining the pure fruit characteristics of the Pinot Noir grape. 10% of the wine was then matured in new French oak barrels for 10 to 12 months, adding a touch of oak influence to the final blend.
Serve slightly chilled at 14 to 15°C. Will pair well with grilled salmon or a succulent joint of oven roasted beef.
