"The 2002 Lancaster is the expression of a near perfect growing season in the Alexander Valley. Ideal weather conditions during budbreak and bloom, very little rain after sunset, and cool summer mornings yielded clusters of small, concentrated berries which provided the building blocks of this great vintage. This wine is a blend of 88% cabernet sauvignon, 5% cabernet franc, 4% malbec, 2% merlot and 1% petit verdot. The fruit was sorted by hand, pressed, fermented, and aged in the estate's caves for 22 months in tight-grained French oak barrels and an additional 14 months in bottle. Aromas of black cherries, lavender, and vanilla bean lead the way to layers of black fruit, lush textures, and a long polished finish. "
