Lancaster Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
This wine is formidably structured, grippy and oaky, with substantial concentration. It speaks to cedar, dried herb and toasted oak, with cinnamon and nutmeg accents along the way. Dark in color, the inky density drips in blackberry and currant.
Roasted herb and tobacco leaf notes are liberally infused into the core of steeped plum and blackberry flavors in this red. A pretty hefty dose of toast holds sway on the finish, while the fruit and herb notes try to push through. Ends with a bit of rusticity. Drink now through 2024.
