2009 Lancaster Estate Sophia’s Hillside Cuvée

The 2009 Lancaster Estate Sophia’s Hillside Cuvée is a blend of hillside blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon and just a touch of Merlot. A dark, lush wine with balanced tannins, our Hillside Cuvée can be enjoyed upon release. This Bordeaux style blend has beautiful aromas of clove, cinnamon, and violets that come together with hints of fresh berries. A fruit forward wine with excellent balance, the 2009 vintage of Sophia’s exhibits intense notes of berry, plum, and cherry. The long finish and hints of dark chocolate are complemented with rich overtones of French oak. This wine was bottled unfiltered to maintain its truest expression.

With a dry winter and warm spring the vines awoke early in 2009. Late March brought spring rains, which encouraged vigorous growth prior to bloom. Even fruit and berry set led to a balanced crop while mild summer conditions and a toasty August encouraged ripening. Despite late October rains, the grapes arrived at the winery in pristine condition.

2009 Lancaster Estate Nicole's Proprietary Red

Each vintage a number of our Cabernet vineyard blocks will mature to perfection, producing fruit with a definitive richness of character. From these blocks, our winemaker identifies and hand-selects grapes to craft a proprietary bottling. The 2009 Vintage of our Nicole’s Proprietary Red is an intense expression of hillside Cabernet Sauvignon balanced by lush, elegant Malbec. Rich and powerful aromas of espresso, vanilla, and blackberry are present on the nose. Structurally, the Nicole’s 2009 is a seamless integration of dense, cocoa-like tannins and dried currant, cherry, and mineral notes.
