From Winemakers to Watch: Enfields”s John Lockwood -SFGate

“The Syrah comes from the nearby Haynes vineyard in Coombsville, east of downtown Napa, with Chardonnay planted in 1966, some of Napa’s oldest, and Syrah that’s planted on a mix of the area’s two key soils: volcanic ash and alluvial gravel, a mix of quintessential Napa.
Lockwood’s time at Failla reveals itself in his Haynes, a wine that succeeds with dense tannins and more plummy fruit than you’d expect given its modest 12.6 percent alcohol.”

“Have you heard? Tulocay took home a Gold Medal from the 2012 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition for our 2009 Haynes Vineyard Pinot Noir and a Silver for our 2008 Haynes Vineyard Chardonnay. Competition was stiff–over 5,500 entries!”
“It’s an attention that Lockwood describes as basic to quality vineyards. Lockwood just opened his own label,Enfield Wine Co., the first release a 2010 Syrah from Haynes Vineyard in Coombsville, a site closely maintained by Fernando Delgado. Delgado manages Haynes Vineyard living on site to work with the vines daily. Lockwood explains that he selects his vineyard sites partially by who manages the location. Vineyard practices such as organics or biodynamics are valuable, he tells me, but the practice that makes the biggest difference is attention, an insight Lockwood first learned through Mahaffey.”
