Ehlers Estate

2014 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon

 


 

Tasting Notes: A full-bodied, complex Cabernet Sauvignon, built to last a lifetime. Ripe summer blackberries, sweet leathery tannins, black plums, dark Valrhona chocolate, vanilla bean, and notes of cinnamon. The layers of flavor impressions never stop. Dense and intense with firm old-world acidity, this wine has a finish of Italian espresso. A classic Ehlers Estate 1886 that will continue to improve for decades.

 

Vintage: 2014 was another great vintage in the Napa Valley. A drought year for sure, but just as the spring rolled in, we received a timely drenching rain that was just what the vines needed to get started. The season took off historically early, the weather was warm and mellow all summer, and we harvested earlier than ever under sunny skies.  The fruit was beautiful, the wines are intense, complex, and concentrated.
