Behind every lock, you can be pretty sure you’ll find something special—something precious, something worth protecting. And unfortunately, unless you’re in possession of the key, you can only imagine what you’re missing. It’s only fitting, then, that our winemakers should put our Meritage under lock and key—it’s something quite special indeed. Our premium Bordeaux-style red blend is made from grapes sourced from California’s prestigious North Coast Appellation. Every bottle reveals the untold riches of Sonoma and Lake County fruit—beguiling aromas, opulently layered flavors, and an extravagantly silky finish.

This is a solid california style meritage (bordeaux) blend. Nicely balanced, fuller bodied, good fruit levels with the smoothness that comes with a blend - though I was still able to appreciate the nice cabernet nose. You will savor this with or without food.
You have to take the price into account when rating this wine. It is simply one of the best value wines I have come across in a while.
I tried this at a wine tasting at the insistence of a wine distributor. I purchased several bottles that night and took one to a get together of "wino" friends the following weekend. The response was unanimous - both recreational and more commited vinophiles in turn purchased this for themselves. That might be the best indicator of how this wine will hit you.

Notes on the Lock & Key Meritage 750ML 2009

Technical Notes Fairly complex on the nose with macerated herb notes embedded in sweet cherry fruit all wrapped up in tree bark, old wood and medicinal notes. Fairly nice on entry, this exhibits a nice balance between the structural component and richness of fruit and manages that richness without becoming sticky or heavy, or even overly fruity for that matter. There's a nice wash of lightly brambly fruit on entry, then balanced notes of currants, black cherry, vanilla and nutty oak compete for attention. The finish is much the same if perhaps a bit sweeter with that sweetness balanced by some bitterness from the wood tannins. Not showy, this is modestly complex and feels fresh and clean on the palate.
