Tasting Notes:

A dense, rich, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from the loamy benchland soils of our north St. Helena estate vineyard. The wine is plush and juicy with flavors of blackberries, truffles, black plums, torrefaction, toasted coconut, raspberry jam and cocoa. The power always present in our Ehlers Cabernet is polished to a sheen with the addition of 9% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot, while a final dash of 3% Petit Verdot contributes a hint of blueberry and nutmeg to this Bordeaux-style blend. Great structure and balance, fine tanins, will age for decades.

Vineyard Notes:

The extraordinary 2009 growing season brought us yet another drought year, which is generally ideal for winegrapes, yet not so great for everything else. We had a beautiful, long warm sunny summer with and endless string of hot days and cool nights. The red wines emerged from the fermentation tanks with brilliant color, fantastic extraction, and ripe, mature, supple tanins. The Ehlers crew brought all of our fruit in before the onslaught of early October rains which caught many Napa Valley vintners by surprise.
