Lancaster 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon “Alexander Valley, Sonoma County” ($75)

This excellent Cab features powerful complexity on nose and palate. Tannins are a bit forward, yet nicely rounded and well-integrated with strong fruit and appealing power. Serve this palate-catching beauty with beef.

Ask your favorite store to order this wine for you. Prices may vary.
