I must qualify this review with the fact that I work for the winery, however, having spent a good 10 years in the industry working for other wineries, I have had the opportunty to taste Lancaster Estate 2004 blind against some of the big dogs - Lokoya, Verite', Harlan Estate, Opus One, Rudd, to name a few. Out of a flight of 12 wines, the 2004 placed shockingly high - at #3. I say "shockingly" because I honestly did not believe an Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon could hold its weight against most top tiered, Napa Valley Cabs. This is the first vintage from Jennifer Higgins, with Dave Ramey consulting. It's a big, dense, full-bodied wine that will catch the interest of serious Cabernet lovers. It has mine! Thank goodness I have such easy access.

Lancaster makes an outstanding estate grown blend, and the 2004 was one of the best vintages to date. I love the vanilla that comes through from the french oak. The 2001 Lancaster estate is even better, but getting difficult to find.

Light red in appearance almost ruby in color. Hints of caramel, vanilla, and smoke on the nose. Delicious fruit flavors from plum up front to a subtle currant towards the end. Very well balanced and tasting excellent right now (10/09)

Estate grown, produced and bottled with David Ramey as consulting winemaker, this Cabernet Sauvignon has lush ripeness, with deep black cherry and plum characters, supportive tannins, and layers of complexity that carry over into the long finish. Aged 22 months in French oak barrels, the wine was bottled unfiltered, and were it from Napa, it would surely fetch upwards of $150... If you love Jordan or Silver Oak, you'll be blown away by the power an quality of this Alexander Valley neighbor!

Estate grown, produced and bottled, our 2004 has lush ripeness, with deep black cherry and plum characters, accented by lavender and spice. Supportive tannins and layers of complexity extend over the long finish. Aged 22 months in French oak barrels, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered, to retain purity of expression.
