Estate grown, produced and bottled, our 2007 Lancaster Estate Cabernet is intense with dark stone fruit, blackberry, and white pepper with hints of chocolate dust. The red plum and heritage rose aromas compliment finely textured tannins while the earthy finish rounds out the toast and complexity. Aged 28 months in French oak barrels, this wine was bottled unfiltered. 3,134 cases produced.
Mild winter conditions and a dry spring led to early bud break. Summer was mild with a hot August that encouraged ripening and as summer came to a close – it appeared to be an earlier harvest. The weather cooled and things slowed to a snails pace – pushing us into our usual late October conclusion. Yields for all Bordeaux varietals were extremely low – yet the resultant wine has amazing concentration and balance.
