Winemaker Notes

This full-bodied wine has a seamless structure, and boasts a delicate balance from beginning to end. Bold and expressive, with fat, full tanins that are at once refined, silky, and subtle. Blended from the rockiest, most well-drained parcels of the estate vineyard, this "1886" is a classic, ageworthy Ehlers Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot
