From the Cellar

Lockwood 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (California)

20 Mar 2019

Lockwood Vineyards

 

(January 15, 2019) ... Having visited Monterey in the past I know they pride themselves on being a "cool climate" region within California's warm climate, and this wine shows that in this "cool" part of the state you can still grow and age some nice Cabernet. This is a nice piece of winemaking here and it really surprised me at how well it held on: dried dark fruit but with great acid punch that really helps show the wine off in a good light, while still managing to keep it fresh - there's even hints of anise and new leather swimming around in here; the only thing that really gives away its age is the amount of sediment it threw in the bottom of the last glass.
