2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

Lock Vineyard

What else can we say about this Cabernet other than WOW - this is special! Our classically structured Estate Cab continues to highlight our wonderful fruit. Starting with a gorgeous ruby-garnet color this wine leads to aromas of blackberry, coffee and chocolate. Well balanced tannins and a wonderful mid-mouth feel highlights this rich, bold and velvety smooth wine. In the barrel 18 months this Cab was bottled in April of 2009. Fabulous now, think of what you can expect in a couple of years – if you can wait!

2007 Improv

2007 Improv

Lock Vineyard

This is the inaugural release of this wonderful eclectic blend of our wonderful Syrah and Zinfandel has opened to rave reviews. It just may be one of our most promising blends! Anxiously awaited by those who barrel tasted this wine, it does not disappoint! To quote Robert Parker, "This is another layered, medium to full-bodied, opulent, seductive red exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color as well as a boatload of blue and black fruits interwoven with notions of mountain berries, earth, and spice” - it's fantastic! Only 330 cases of this spectacular wine were produced!

2007 Prelude

2007 Prelude

Our 2007 “Prelude” can only be described as the perfect marriage of these two wonderful Rhone varietals. The fruity characteristic of the Marsanne with its flowery nose and richness compliment the crisp dryness of the Roussanne. The wine is dry and displays a lush nutty flavor with hints of almond, melon, herb and floral components. Aging in neutral barrels for six months allowed the fruit to show through with just a hint of oak producing an elegant, complex wine that is perfectly balanced. Enjoy

Only 135 cases of this incredible wine were produced!

2007 Rendition

2007 Rendition

Normally blended as our traditional Rhone style blend or the “GSM”, our 2007 Écluse “Rendition” is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Zinfandel. Because we were unable to source enough good Mourvedre we decided to remain true to our commitment to make the best wine from the best fruit available. The result – extraordinary! To quote Robert Parker "it is a knockout. Sexy and opulent with loads of spice box, pepper kirsch, and black currants, it is made in a seductive, broad, savory style with medium to full body, and not a hard edge to be found." Beautifully approachable from its nose to finish Rendition can only be described as fabulous!

2007 Syrah

2007 Syrah

Lock Vineyard

Our 07 Syrah continues in the footsteps of our earlier award winning Syrah from Lock Vineyard – fantastic! Beginning with the deep garnet color typical of a great Syrah, the nose of fruit, spice and overtones of chocolate leads you to an incredibly well balanced wine with layers of complexity and a long lingering finish!

2007 Zinfandel

2007 Zinfandel

Lock Vineyard

Our Estate Zinfandel continues to be a huge favorite of our Ecluse fans and this 2007 Zinfandel can only be described as fabulous! Continuing in our tradition of making a food friendly, fruit forward Zinfandel. Our 2007 Zin 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 great mid-palate and long finish - it’s yummy!

Only 186 cases of this wonderful wine were produced!
