89 points "Well-focused, supple and polished, with ripe, rich and complex black cherry, plum and currant flavors that finish with a cedary oak and sage aftertaste, and ripe, fleshy tannins. Drink now through 2008. 5,600 cases made. (JL) " Best 2005-2008

" Lancaster's 70-acre estate is anything but ordinary. Just a half mile away, the Russian River provides a moderate cooling influence moderating the abundant Sonoma sunshine-a rare combination that resonates in the wines. The 1999 Lancaster is a complex, layered wine, revealing concentrated currant and black plum notes, a graceful texture and a polished finish. With a high percentage of merlot in 1999, this wine is very approachable right now. A Top 100 pick from the San Francisco Chronicle!"
