2011 Ehlers Estate One Twenty Over Eighty

2011 Ehlers Estate One Twenty Over Eighty

The wine is layered with blackberry, black raspberry, caramel and milk chocolate, and sports a great structure and backbone. Focused acid, silky soft tannins, and a touch of spice emerge from the mid-palate. Compelling and complex, this is a fine Bordeaux style Cabernet blend that will age for decades.

Tasting Notes:

This is a full-bodied, heavyweight Cabernet Sauvignon from the loamy benchland soils of our north St. Helena estate vineyard. The wine is layered with blackberry, black raspberry, caramel and milk chocolate, and sports a great structure and backbone. Focused acid, silky soft tannins, and a touch of spice emerge from the mid-palate. Compelling and complex, this is a fine Bordeaux style Cabernet blend that will age 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 that 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.
