2005 Ensemble

A handcrafted blend described as a lush, supple and elegant! The nose invites you to explore the harmony of these Bordeaux varietals with the classic Cabernet Sauvignon black cherry and currant and added fruit and spice brought by the other varietals. Our 2005 “Ensemble” has a wonderful tannin/acid balance and provides a long, lingering finish, and is an excellent accompaniment to filets, racks of lamb and roasts.

2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Lock Vineyard

Of the eight vintages of Écluse Wines we have produced, we felt that only one wine merited the designation Reserve - the 2005 Lock Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine was so extraordinary that we decided to barrel age it an additional twelve months and release it as our first Écluse Reserve. Barrel aging for thirty months plus an additional twenty-one months in the bottle has produced an elegant complex wine that is perfectly balanced with flavors that march through to a long lingering finish. This wonderful wine can only be described as soft and voluptuous - Velvet in the bottle! The classic deep garnet color and inviting nose leads you to a bold velvety richness that is highlighted by dense dark fruit and hints of coffee and chocolate. So supple and lush you will be left wishing for more! Only 107 cases of this seductive wine were produced!

2005 Syrah

2005 Syrah

Lock Vineyard

Our 2005 Syrah follows in the footsteps of our earlier award winning Syrah wines from Lock Vineyard – fantastic! Beginning with the deep garnet color typical of great Syrah, the nose of fruit, spice and overtones of chocolate leads you to a wine with layers of complexity and well balanced tannins and acids. Very approachable on release and perfect to enjoy with family and friends, but this phenomenal Syrah will age well over the next seven to ten years!

2005 Rendition

2005 Rendition

Anchored with our signature Syrah and of the addition of Grenache and Mourvèdre brings forth the very best of these three varietals to our handcrafted rendition of the traditional Rhone blend, the “GSM.” The dark fruitiness, coffee and hints of chocolate in the Syrah blends well with the lighter fruit and spice of the Grenache and Mourvèdre. Extremely approachable at release and will only improve with age! A marvelous wine for all occasions.

Only 285 cases of this exemplary wine were produced!

2005 Zinfandel

2005 Zinfandel

Lock Vineyard

Our goal was to make a food friendly, fruit forward Zinfandel and we think we hit the mark with our 2005 Zin which exhibits typical traits of a wonderful Westside Paso Robles Zinfandel - rich – full of fruit with jammy characteristics. It is a very fruit forward wine with strong notes of blackberries, a balanced acid and tannic structure which offers a pleasant mid-palate and long finish.

Only 126 cases of this wonderful wine were produced!
