Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2014 Lancaster Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful wine that captures the pure expression of our unique terroir here at Lancaster Estate. It is a blend of all five of the red Bordeaux varietals we have planted on our volcanic hillside slopes. Bold aromas of dark raspberry, cherry, and violet are complemented by a refined minerality. It is well-structured and focused with silky tannins that frame the blackberry, currant, vanilla, and spicy dark chocolate flavors. Endless layers continue to evolve on the palate as the wine opens leading to an elegant, lingering finish. An approachable wine in its youth, this Cabernet will only gain in complexity and will drink well for the next 15-20 years.

Vintage Notes:
2014 proved to be a challenging yet abundant vintage in the Alexander Valley. Midsummer sugars were initially ahead of flavor development, but cool weather in September stalled ripening. This resulted in an even ripening, where the grapes reached full flavor potential through optimal maturity. The grapes were harvested from September 11 - October 13, 2014 with higher yields for the third consecutive year.


Ratings & Reviews

94 Points #86 Top 100 of 2017 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A big, rich Cabernet, with firm, structured tannins that are powerful and edgy, framing the core of blackberry, black cherry, plum and espresso flavors. An impressive effort. Best from 2019 through 2029. 4,075 cases made." - JL (Sep 2017)
