2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Lock Vineyard

When blending our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, we found four stand out barrels of our Lock Vineyard Cab that were so exceptional we knew we had our second Reserve in the making. This wine was barrel aged for 30 months creating an elegantly complex wine that is incredibly balanced with luscious flavors and a long lingering finish. 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 chocolate. Perfectly aged just for you, it's velvet in a bottle!

2009 Cab Reserve Magnum 1.5 L

Lock Vineyard

When blending our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, we found four fabulous stand out barrels of our Lock Vineyard Cab that tasted so exceptionally well, we knew we had a special wine. The decision was made to hold these special barrels over for another year to see if this wine deserved to be our second vintage of our Écluse Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and it did! This wine was barrel aged for 30 months, creating an elegantly complex wine that is perfectly balanced with luscious flavors that march through to a long lingering finish. 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 chocolate. This wonderful wine can only be described as soft and voluptuous. It's velvet in a bottle!

2009 Ensemble

2009 Ensemble

Blending our Lock Vineyard Cab with the Petite Verdot & Merlot created a sophisticated wine that has aged beautifully. The dark, inky color leads to a hint of cocoa, oak and floral notes on the nose and a rich palate with flavors of dark cherry and dried currants. Enjoy!

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 2011. Fabulous now, think of what you can expect in a couple of years – if you can wait!

2009 Grenache

2009 Grenache

We usually use Grenache as a blending grape in our wonderful red Rhone blend, “Rendition,” however we were able to set aside a small amount that showed such exceptional varietal characteristics that we decided to bottle it as a single varietal! Our 2009 Grenache is showing remarkably well with aromas of vibrant red fruit and a wonderfully dark ruby color. Classically structured with aromas of rose petals, cherry, pomegranate, raspberry, vanilla and clove with a tart mid-palate leading you to a fabulous finish. Great on its own or as a perfect companion to food, enjoy!

2009 Prelude (White Rhone Blend)

2009 Prelude (White Rhone Blend)

“Prelude” continues to be extremely well received and is a wine that challenges the senses because of its complexity. This vintage brings together the best characteristics of Viognier, Roussanne and Grenache Blanc. Our goal in blending this wine was to offer a crisp smooth wine that would be appealing on a hot summer day but also pair well with salads and seafood. It combines the deep color and perfumy nose of the Viognier with the citrus notes of the Grenache Blanc and the more intense aromatics of the Roussanne.

Only 252 cases of this wonderful wine produced!

2009 Zinfandel

2009 Zinfandel

Lock Vineyard

Our 2009 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 2009 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!
