New Lancaster Cab release - limited! previous vintage 94 Points Robert Parker: "The Lancaster Cabernet Sauvignon Estate bursts from the glass with blackberries, cassis, grilled herbs, smoke and licorice, all of which are beautifully woven together. This ripe juicy Cabernet presents an exotic, super-ripe profile balanced by a firm sense of structure. Not a bad combination, to say the least. Freshly cut flowers, mint and licorice are layered into the energetic, vibrant finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024...Unfortunately I was only able to taste one wine from Lancaster, but it is a stunner. David Ramey is on board as consulting winemaker. Hopefully the 2008 is a sign of great things to come.” 95 Points Wine Enthusiast - Cellar Selection: "A massive wine that absolutely demands time in the cellar, Lancaster is nearly all Cabernet, with tiny amounts of the other four Bordeaux varieties. It stuns with the power and authenticity of its hilly Cabernet origins, offering vast black currant, orange rind, anise and smoky oak flavors that implode on the palate. It shoudl blossom and fully come into its own after 2013."
