Although it carries a California label, the Lockeford designation tells you it’s from Lodi. The slightly herbal, black-pepper aromas and tangy berry fruit give little indication of its hot-climate origins; The meaty, earthy flavors on the midpalate sing through the finish.
Here's a rich, lively wine marked by grassy, citrus flavors veering into ripe figs, and shaped by barrel fermentation and oak notes. It has a nice, creamy, leesy texture, and is dry and spicy.
Not a big wine, but with some nice plum and blackberry flavors, with hints of coffee, dark chocolate and herbs. Completely dry, and fairly tannic, too, although the fruit leaves behind a rich sweetness on the finish.
This full-bodied and bracing wine has ultraripe flavors of lime, grapefruit and currants, girded with zesty acidity. The fruit really hits in the midpalate and lasts through the long, lush finish. Try with spicy Thai fish cakes.
