New Lancaster Cab release - limited!
The 2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon captures the pure expression of our unique terroir at Lancaster Estate. It is a blend of all five of the red Bordeaux varietals we have planted on our volcanic hillside slopes. The wine has an intensely deep color with rich aromas of dark berry fruits, espresso and violet. Commanding and multi-layered flavors of plum, black currant, and blackberry jam meld together with savory leather and mocha. Refined and polished tannins provide amazing structure and depth that gain power as the wine moves across the palate for a long, decadent finish. This wine should be decanted when young, and will only gain in complexity for the next 15-20 years.
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
