Ehlers Estate

2013 Ehlers Estate J. Leducq Cabernet Sauvignon
from Peter

2013 Ehlers Estate J. Leducq Cabernet Sauvignon

As serious and compelling a Cabernet as you can find anywhere, this juicy wine is spicy, perfumed with pomegranate, and peppered with cayenne. It is full-bodied, elegantly structured, and infinitely complex, with firm tannins and a powerful finish.

Tasting Notes

This is a single-lot, single-vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon from the Aikens Loam hill behind the barrel barn on our St. Helena estate. As serious and compelling a Cabernet as you can find anywhere, this juicy wine is spicy, perfumed with pomegranate, and peppered with cayenne. It is full-bodied, elegantly structured, and infinitely complex, with firm tannins and a powerful finish. This stunning wine 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.
