In a nutshell:
A polished and silky, unoaked Californian Pinot Noir
Lockwood's vineyards are mainly to be found in the Monterey area of California's Central Coast sub-region. The lagre variations in day-night temperatures around here create good conditions for concentrating the flavours found in the berries. To highlight the purity of the fruit no oak is used and all vinification and ageing is done in staninless steel. The result is a wine with bright red aromas of strawberry and red cherry. A hint of violets rise from the glass and are joined by flavours of raspberry, cardamom and a touch of oak spice. It's very well structured with a nicely taught body and deliciously long finish..
When to drink:
An interestingly complex wine. Serve with things like chargrilled chicken, duck or a succulent joint of roast beef.
Suitable for Vegetarians
