2009 Lancaster Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley (375ml)
A true representation of the unique terroir of our 53 acres of hillside vineyards. Our 2009 Estate Cabernet is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Layered and finely grained tannins create a dense, tightly knit structure and backbone that provides remarkable depth, concentration and purity. Aromas of black cherry, clove, nutmeg, and blackberry are followed by subtle notes of red plum, cassis and vanilla on the palate. The persistent and elegant finish exhibits hints of cocoa, dark fruit and a lingering minerality. Consistent with Lancaster Estate’s commitment to making wines of authenticity and place, all of our wines are estate grown, produced and bottled. Native yeasts are used for primary fermentation while secondary malolactic fermentation occurs naturally in barrel. To preserve the truest expression of our estate, the Lancaster Estate 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon was gently fined and then bottled unfiltered.
