Professional Wine Reviews for Lexington Cabernet Sauvignon Gist Ranch Red Blend 2013

Rated 92 by Decanter
A big, rich wine, Lexington's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Gist Ranch Estate packs a serious punch. Imposing mountain tannins gradually melt away to reveal a core of super-expressive dark cherry jam, grilled herbs, tobacco, leather and menthol. This is an especially big, ample style with plenty of structure from its location at about 2,000 feet above sea level. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2013 for at least a few years.

Winery Lexington

Region: California

When it comes to New World wine regions, it is widely agreed that many of the finest wines are grown and produced in California. The long stretches of coastline and the valleys and mountainsides which come off them are ideal areas for vine cultivation, and for over a century now, wineries have found a perfect home in the hot, dry state, with many of the wines produced here going on to reach world class status. The state is greatly helped by the brisk oceanic winds which cool the otherwise hot and dry vineyards, which hold mineral rich soils covering vast areas and featuring many established wineries. The state is split into four main regions, the largest by far being the central valley which stretches over three hundred miles in length.

Country: United States

For three hundred years now, the United States has been leading the New World in wine production, both in regards to quantity and quality. Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin. Indeed, as much as eighty-nine percent of all wines to come out of the United States are produced in California, where the fertile soils and sloping mountain sides, coupled with the long, hot summers provide ideal conditions for producing high quality, European style red, white and rosé wines. With over a million acres of the country under vine, the United States sits comfortably as the fourth largest wine producer in the world, where imported grape varietals from all over the Old World are processed using a successful blend of traditional and contemporary techniques.
