Behind every lock, you can be sure you’ll discover something special—something precious, something worth protecting. It’s only fitting, then, that the winemakers put this Meritage under lock and key—it’s something quite special, indeed.
Handcrafted in the traditional Bordeaux-style using three of the noble grape varietals—Cabernet, Merlot, and Cab Franc—Lock & Key is an affordable luxury. Made from grapes sourced from California’s prestigious North Coast Appellation, every bottle reveals the riches of Sonoma and Lake County fruit: beguiling aromas, opulently layered blackberry and plum flavors with hints of dark chocolate and tobacco spice, and an extravagantly silky finish.
Unlocking the treasure inside every bottle is, fortunately, quite simple—a few quick turns of a corkscrew (the key) should undo the lock (the cork).
In 1947, brothers John and Mario Trinchero traveled to St. Helena, California, near the renowned Napa Valley growing region, and purchased Sutter Home Winery. Mario’s son, Bob, joined the company, and in 1975 he developed the revolutionary White Zinfandel varietal. Trinchero Family Estates represents over 27 brands in the United States and Australia, including Sutter Home, Little Boomey, and Trinchero Napa Valley.
