Ehlers Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 1886
The 2007 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon "1886" is a classic expression of our North St. Helena terroir. This vintage brought us a rich, powerful, dense Cabernet with all the elegance and soft, silky tannins that have always defined our Estate. Notes of black cherries and violets are followed by a symphony of red fruit and spicy layers that finish with impressions of dark Valrhona chocolate. The Petit Verdot contributes a wisp of blueberry and nutmeg, and the small addition of Merlot warms up the mid palate. There is great structure and balance that promises continued improvement for decades.
