2013 Monterey

Malbec
Description

The grapes grown for Lockwood Vineyard wines are selected only from specific, vigilantly maintained, and thoroughly analyzed blocks within the expansive San Lucas Vineyard. By thoroughly examining each micro-climate, and corresponding soil profile, then evaluating various combinations of varietals, clonal selections and rootstocks, we are able to choose the best plantings in the vineyard.  

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Warm aromas of dark Morello cherry and dried plum. Deep red in the glass.

Palate: 

 Flavors of cherry and currants are accented by a subtle minerality presenting a medium bodied wine, Silky tannins lead to a long, satisfying finish.  

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2013 vintage across Monterey was an ideal growing season with the perfect conditions for bloom and fruit set. A dry winter led to a mild spring and cool summer. The extra summer fog and cloud cover allowed for an extended growing season resulting in excellent flavor concentration, good acidity, and structure.
