Accolades/Awards

  • Gold Medal - San Francisco Chronicle
  • 94 points Affairs of the Vine Cab Shootout Competition - Love at First Sip!

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!
