Lancaster Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2007
Estate grown, produced and bottled, our 2007 Lancaster Estate Cabernet is intense with dark stone fruit, blackberry, and white pepper with hints of chocolate dust. The red plum and heritage rose aromas compliment finely textured tannins while the earthy finish rounds out the toast and complexity.
Fantastic. One of my favorites big time.
External Reviews for Lancaster Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. If not the most "driven" wine on the table, this wine more than makes up for its slight shortfall in energy with a good dose of ripe black cherry fruit and a layer of oaky richness. It is full on the palate without getting heavy but is a bit weighed down by youthful tannin. Give it three to five years in the cellar to find a softer, rounder approach.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.
