Tasting Notes – Ehlers Estate

Ehlers Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2009

High range of brightness, if this was a piano it would be the top ten notes on the keyboard. Very floral and semi-sweet. Not a broad range of complexity, but what it hits it hits well. Citrusy, with guava notes, would serve it well chilled and pair it with grilled vegetables on top of a whole wheat pasta.

Ehlers Estate Merlot 2007

This is why they still plant merlot. Smoky, chewy and full bodied, this is a luscious ripe complex merlot. Bright, fruity but restrained – just delicious. Roast a chicken with tarragon and a slice of smoky cheese.

Ehlers Estate 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Restrained Cabernet Sauvignon with fruit that doesn’t scream Cabernet Sauvignon. Well crafted, smooth. A little dark licorice and raspberry. Steakhouse wine. Our tasting panel slightly preferred the Merlot, but this wine a huge hit at a party we threw afterwards.
