Notes from the Winemaker:

Lancaster Estate’s 53-acres of vineyards are born from the rich, volcanic soils and rolling hillsides of Alexander Valley. It is the great diversity of soil along with the cool evenings and sun-drenched days that create ideal growing conditions for Bordeaux varietals. At Lancaster Estate, we are dedicated to growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc with the explicit intention of producing the most authentic expression possible.

Dark, rich fruit presents aromas of wild game on the nose. On the palate there are hints of blackberry compote and dark stone fruit flavors. An incredible display of the rich and concentrated flavors, this wine glides across the palate for a long, decadent finish. 

Ratings & ReviewsRatings and Reviews

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley, which is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, is their biggest cuvée of 3,640 cases. It is scheduled for bottling in January of 2015. Hints of graphite, black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit with some licorice, loamy soil, vanilla and spice box are all present in this medium to full-bodied wine. It’s full-bodied and relatively opulent with a nice tannic structure in the background. This should drink well for 15-20 years. 

90 Points - Wine Spectator:
Well done in a Bordeaux style, this shows dusty, cedary cigar box and tobacco notes amid graphite accents and gravel-laced tannins. The tannins have grip on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 3,640 cases made.
