“I am very proud of these wines. The 2009 and 2010 vintages provided the perfect balance of terroir with temperatures giving us the optimum ripeness and fruit flavors,” said Steve Lock, winemaker and proprietor. “Working with the fruit from our 30-acre estate vineyard for the past 15 years helps me really understand each of these wines from the vineyard to the glass. I’m pleased the wine critics are discovering what I believe are some very special wines.”
