"...a stunner. This wine bursts from the glass with blackberries, cassis, grilled herbs, smoke and licorice which are all beautifully woven together."
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2012
"A great Cabernet that will proudly stand beside the best of Napa Valley. So good to drink now, you might forget to age it, but don't."
- Wine Enthusiast, July 2012
"Smooth, lush and ripe with sweet plum, juicy acidity and great depth; rich, dense and spicy with intensity and balance."
- The Tasting Panel, September 2012
"...gets better and better the longer you sit with it in the glass. Starts off with purple fruit and juiciness in the tannins as the firm fruit comes into focus."

The 2011 Lancaster Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine that combines richness with finesse. Although this vintage produced a lower yield than the last, this wine has incredible concentration, and layered tannins. The blend best represents the terroir of the Lancaster Estate hillside vineyards as well. Complex aromas of currants, nutmeg and blackberries engage the nose. Rich and focused tannins lead to the balance of dark cherries, cassis, and vanilla. The long layered finish has hints of dark chocolate that is finely strung together with a pure minerality.
