Looking for an AWESOME, big bottle of Cabernet for the holidays!? Check out this magnum from Lancaster Estate in Alexander Valley. A winemaker's best barrel selection of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Merlot, all from Lancaster's mature, hillside plantings on the boarder of Knights Valley and Chalk Hill. It's just loaded with rich black and blue fruit, ripe plum, blueberry compote, cassis, toasted spices, dusted cocoa powder and hints of cedar. It's got noble tannin structure overlain with ample lush fruit and sweet barrel spice. Full of life and expressive varietal character; a total crowd pleaser for lovers of California Cab and Bordeaux drinkers alike. And the best part? Our price for the 1.5L magnum is half of the original price! You're basically getting double the wine for the same price! If you're planning a dinner or get together anytime this holiday season, or just find that sometimes one bottle just isn't enough...look no further than this epic deal.

The 2016 Winemaker's Cuvee is a classic California Cabernet Sauvignon blend that is made up of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. The nose is full of cassis and blueberries with some lavender and a touch of vanilla oak and pencil lead. There are also hints of gravel which most likely comes from the warmer climate and soils in the Northern part of the Alexander Valley. This wine is dense yet elegant and refined, being quite polished. There is good tannin structure to let you know that it's still very youthful and since this is in magnum format, I would recommend decanting if you plan to drink it now. Saying that, I think this would be a great wine to serve with a Christmas beef roast or other holiday foods. There is plenty of complexity, concentration and richness here already yet this wine will age well for decades to come, especially in this larger format bottle. The 2016 Winemaker's Cuvee is quite classy and shows just how good the quality of Alexander Valley can be.
