2018 LANCASTER WINEMAKER’S CUVEE ALEXANDER VALLEY

$69.99 $69.99

Millions of years ago, volcanic and seismic activity shaped much of Alexander Valley, leaving the area with dozens of unique soil types and microclimates, proven to produce savory and delicious Bordeaux-style blends. Lancaster’s hillside estate soils are nutrient deficient, forcing the vine to concentrate more on survival and less on green leaf growth, ideal for growing grapes with distinct character and varietal expression.

Each vintage brings opportunities to learn and improve, so viticulturist Brian Malone and winemaker David Drake work closely to monitor small vineyard changes with satellite mapping and climatic analysis from vineyard weather stations. Every vineyard block is evaluated for each microclimate’s most superior clones and rootstocks, producing wines that boast robust flavors and compete with some of Napa Valley’s finest red wines.

2018 LANCASTER WINEMAKER’S CUVEE ALEXANDER VALLEY

The 2018 Winemaker's Cuvee is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Medium ruby, it has pretty scents of Morello cherries, cigar box, lavender and pencil shavings. The full-bodied palate is approachable straight from the bottle, with grainy tannins, refreshing acidity and a long, mineral-laced finish."

"The 2018 Winemaker’s Cuvee is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend from vineyards in Alexander Valley. Crushed flowers, cedar, mint, tobacco and earthy accents run through a core of raspberry and blood orange fruit. Bright acids and a spine of tannin lend vibrancy as the 2018 opens in the glass. Time brings out the aromatics nicely. Drink this classy, understated red blend over the next decade or so."
