Lockwood 2013 Pinot Noir, Monterey
The original partners of Lockwood Vineyard first planted the large 1,850 acre San Lucas Vineyard in 1981 after concluding that the parcel was perfect for growing premium grapes. They chose a remote area nestled at the base of the Santa Lucia mountain range, in Monterey County, where the temperature swing from day to night can be as much as 60F. They developed one of the largest premium estate vineyards in the world and its now under the new ownership of the Boisset Famiy from Burgundy who know a few things about Pinot Noir and continue to be devoted to producing high quality estate grown wines from the San Lucas Vineyard. The vineyard contains of a unique soil known as the "Lockwood Shaly Loam," which consists of crushed fossilized seashells similar to chalk and limestone. This soil is uniform to depths of greater than 20 feet, and due to its low nutrient and mineral content, the vines must work hard for survival. The added vine stress and excellent water drainage from this soil creates grapes with complexity and bold character. The grapes for this 2013 Pinot Noir were selectively harvested during the early days of November. The wine underwent a 3 day cold soak followed by a 14 day fermentation after which it was left on skins for an additional 5 days. The wine was then aged with a combination of stainless steel and French oak, 15% new. It opens with bright aromas of strawberry and Bing cherry with just a hint of violet. Luscious flavors of raspberry, cardamom spice, and a touch of oak coincide with a well-structured and deliciously long finish.

Stellar Value Monterey Pinot
This is quite a complex wine, particularly at this price point. Fairly intense aromas of bright cherry and strawberry and enhanced by some floral and spicy notes. The palate is soft and lush, with more layers of fruit carrying to the satisfying finish. An ideal everyday Pinot!

Outstanding everyday Pinot Noir and great value
Fruit filled nose and palate with a good bit of body given the price. Soft tannins. Very, very pleased with this wine.
