Wine Advocate 91-93
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate showcases the brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon that can be achieved in Alexander Valley. With loads of plum, blackberry and cassis fruit, noticeable but sweet tannin, and a multilayered mouthfeel, the wine has attractive suppleness and thrilling levels of extract and richness that make for a big, boisterous, yet promising and potentially long-lived Cabernet Sauvignon. This should drink well for 20+ years.

Here in the southernmost tip of Alexander Valley, where Knights Valley and Chalk Hill are nearby companions, growing conditions excel as a result of cooler marine influences slipping through the Valley, extending the growing season and allowing traditional Bordeaux varieties to develop elegant structure, age-worthy tannins and vibrant, rich flavors with both balance and power.
In 1995, Lancaster Estate debuted following the acquisition of Mayacama Creek Winery and its estate vineyards. Over the next two decades, with great dedication and an unswerving commitment dedicated to limited release Bordeaux styled wines that are grown, produced and bottled from our 53 estate acres, micro-farmed in small vineyard blocks, each with its own expression.
