The Lockwood Vineyard is famous for being the only vineyard in the U.S. with a special soil type called Lockwood Shaley Loam. The remote San Lucas vineyard was planted in 1981 after concluding that the parcel was perfect for growing premium grapes. The vineyard is in a remote area nestled at the base of the Santa Lucia mountain range, in Monterey County.
Lockwood Monterey Pinot Noir opens with bright aromas of strawberry and Bing cherry with just a hint of violet. Luscious flavors of raspberry, soft baking spices (cardamom), and a touch of oak coincide with a well–structured and deliciously long finish. Ideal for duck, roast chicken, and pork dishes.
