FULL BODIED, RED/BLACK FRUIT, SPICE, HERBS, SOME OAK
John Lockwood’s expression of Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the beauty of the grape in its multitude. It presents beautiful floral aromatics backed by a lively palate of bright red berries, ripe plums and an edge of peppery spice.
Chile : Maipo Valley
FULL-BODIED, DARK FRUIT, BOLD, SPICE, ROUND TANNIN, OAK PRESENT
What a great expression of Chilean terroir in such an unassuming package. The nose offers up smoky spice, dark berry fruit and hints of violet. The palate is lush and rich with brambleberry, blackberry, and fig notes with a slight dried herb quality. The finish is juicy and heavenly. ¡Buena onda!
CALIFORNIA : NAPA VALLEY
FULL BODIED, RICH, DARK FRUIT, VELVETY TANNINS, OAK PRESENT
Rich & lush with a striking garnet hue. The wine is immediate with aromas of crushed blackberry & cassis. Deep berry flavors explode in the mouth in a delightful integration of varietal complexity. This is a big wine to linger over, impressively balanced with velvety tannins on the finish.

MEDIUM-FULL BODIED, DARK FRUIT, SPICE, EARTHY, OAK PRESENT
In the nose this wine gives up a bit of sage and mint with darker fruit and sweet oak notes. The palate is deceptively lithe yet with penetrating, nuanced blackberry, sage and forest floor flavors.
