2013 Ehlers Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a full-bodied, heavyweight Cabernet Sauvignon from the loamy benchland soils of our estate vineyard. Big fat and silky smooth. Layered with blackberry, black raspberry, caramel and dark European chocolate, sporting a great structure and solid backbone.

Tasting Notes

This is a full-bodied, heavyweight Cabernet Sauvignon from the loamy benchland soils of our estate vineyard. Big fat and silky smooth. Layered with blackberry, black raspberry, caramel and dark European chocolate, sporting a great structure and solid backbone. Focused acid, velvety tannins, compelling and complex, this is a fine Bordeaux-style Cabernet blend that will age for decades.

Vineyard Notes

2013 was another great vintage in the Napa Valley. A warm, dry spring got the vines off to an exceptionally early start. No frost, no rain, no unusual heat waves, just endless days of California sunshine with classically warm afternoons and those cool nights that the grapevines adore. Budbreak was early, veraison was early, and the tempo continued right up until harvest. Great quality across the board, healthy fermentations, rich, complex, full bodied wines throughout the Napa Valley.
