2008 Cabernet Sauvignon - Sweepstakes Winner!

2008 Cabernet Sauvignon - Sweepstakes Winner!

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 highlight this rich, bold and velvety smooth wine. In the barrel 18 months this Cab was bottled in May of 2010. Fabulous now, think of what you can expect in a couple of years – if you can wait! Only 238 cases of this exemplary wine were produced!

Lock Vineyard

Our 2008 Zinfandel from Lock Vineyard continues to be a huge favorite of our Écluse fans and can only be described as fabulous! Continuing in our tradition of making a food friendly, fruit forward Zinfandel our 2008 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!

2008 Improv

This wine was a huge hit in the first release and this vintage's blend will not disappoint! In keeping with the evolving improvisation of this blend of our wonderful Syrah and Zinfandel we played with the addition of Merlot and loved it as it added a perfect dimension to this wine. A layered medium to full-bodied wine it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a boatload of blue and black fruits along with earth and spice! It's fantastic - get out the Bar-B-Q and enjoy! Only 153 cases of this spectacular wine were produced!

2008 Rendition

Our "Rendition" of the traditional Rhone style blend, the “GSM” continues to be a huge hit with our "Fans." Anchored with our signature Syrah, the addition of Grenache and Mourvèdre brings forth the best of these three varietals. The meaty, dark fruit features and the rich color of the Syrah are married with the brighter fruit and color of the Grenache and spiciness of the Mourvèdre which produced an elegant rich wine that is perfectly balanced. This handcrafted blend is beautifully approachable from its nose to finish. Our 2008 “Rendition” can only be described as fabulous!
