135th Anniversary 1886 Vertical
In celebration of the 135th anniversary of our historic stone winery, we’ve put together a package of our 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon. A reflection of our history, our 1886 Cabernet is a signature of the estate that honors the original vision of Bernard Ehlers and the ideals of Jean and Sylviane Leducq. Sylviane herself designed the beautiful custom bottle that we were pleased to have reintroduced with this year’s release.
This package includes one bottle each of our 2011, 2012, and 2013 vintages of 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon, all in the custom-molded bottle.
Whether you’re a newer member and would like to add to your growing Ehlers collection or a seasoned member and would like to enjoy an old favorite, this is an excellent package for you.
Attractively nestled in a black gift box, this would also make an impressive presentation at your next celebration or generous gift offering.
2011 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon: 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.
2012 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon: Complex, layered, and sophisticated. Powerful and elegant, blackberries, espresso, caramel, leather, French plums, and sweet black currants. This wine is ripe and chewy, big and round, with beautifully resolved tannins. Great balance and structure, like an entire meal in a glass, with a finish that goes on forever. A classic Ehlers Estate “1886” that will continue to improve for decades.
2013 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon: Full-bodied, juicy, dense, and intense, this vintage of “1886” will age and improve for decades. This wine is spicy, opulent, and complex, chewy with rich elegant tannins. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cocoa, and exotic spices keep it interesting! A beautiful Napa Cabernet, from a beautiful vintage.
