Lot #39 LANCASTER ESTATE, FERRARI-CARANO VINEYARDS AND WINERY
Lancaster Estate 50%, PreVail LookOut Mountain 50%
- Alexander Valley
ABOUT THE WINE:
Lancaster Estate and PreVail LookOut Mountain wines have never been blended together before. This is the only collaboration between these two Alexander Valley estate wineries who have a shared commitment to the land and its soil. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from two estate single block vineyards in the Alexander Valley. Combining the Lancaster Estate lion crest in the logo with the PreVail LookOut Mountain vineyard name makes for “Lion’s Lookout.”
Both wineries share a deep commitment to sustainability and are California Sustainable Vineyards & Winery certified. Lancaster Estate is situated at the southern tip of Alexander Valley, near the confluence of the Knights Valley and Chalk Hill appellations and includes vineyards planted to Bordeaux varieties, a state-of-the-art winery and caves dug into the hillside. Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery has been home to award-winning wines, exquisite gardens and breathtaking vineyard views in Sonoma County for more than 40 years, with 1,200+ acres across six appellations.
This 100% Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from low-yielding vines features aromas and flavors of toffee, currants, leather, nutmeg, tobacco, ripe plum, black cherry, dried sage, and toasty oak notes. This full-bodied wine has a long, rich finish and smooth, structured tannins. This wine should be decanted when young, and will only gain in complexity for the next 15-20 years.
