Tasting Notes:

Complex, layered, and sophisticated. This is an age-worthy Cabernet with clean, clear fruit expression, a strong acid presence, and smooth, elegant tannins. Spicy with leather, clove, maple syrup, dark chocolate, black cherries, and black plums, this wine has a terrific balance and structure and a long memorable finish. Every year this wine comes from the rockiest, most well-drained parcels on the property. A classic Ehlers “1886” that will continue to improve for decades.

Vineyard Notes:

2011 started out with a cool wet spring, setting us up for a very unusual vintage right from the start. Yields were lower than average and the cool temperatures that continued through the year reminded us more of France than California. At harvest we found ourselves dancing around the rains, but our best blocks, nonetheless, performed very well, producing complex wines with lower alcohols, firm tannins, and great structure.

1717 cases (6 x 750ml)
