2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Accolades/Awards

  • Gold Medal - Cab Shootout, Affairs of the Vine

We are excited to release the third vintage of our Lock Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve! When blending our 2010 Cab, we found five stand out barrels that tasted so extraordinary, we knew we knew we had another Reserve in the making. This wine was barrel aged for 30 months - 12 months longer than our standard barrel program - creating an elegantly complex wine that is perfectly balanced with luscious flavors that follow 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. It's velvet in a bottle!

Only 120 cases of this elegant wine were produced!

When barrel sampling this wine in the Tasting Room, we discovered that this truly was a special wine enjoyed not only by Port connoisseurs but also those who were skeptical of dessert wines. Made from our very own Lock Vineyard Late Harvest Zinfandel, the Solera method of fractional blending produced a velvety smooth, non-vintage dessert wine full of fresh jammy fruit and barrel aged richness with outstanding complexity and depth. As translation implies, our Finis is the perfect “finish” to a fabulous meal!

Opening a Waxed Bottle: It’s not much trickier than a regular bottle! No need to cut off the wax. Just rub the top of the wax with the palm of your hand to warm it which will help soften the wax. Use a manual corkscrew and twist it right through the wax and into the cork. Just like a non-waxed bottle, pull up and the cork will lift right out. Remove any loose pieces of wax to prevent them from falling into the bottle and enjoy!
