Wines From Ehlers Estate

Napa Valley\’s Ehlers Estate recently received their organic certification. We joined in the celebration by having a night out with their wines. Here are our tasting notes.

Ehlers Estate 2007 Sauvignon Blanc

Clean, low acid with a note of honey and green melon in the palate. Would pair well with a simply prepared swordfish or salmon steak.

Ehlers Estate 2005 Cabernet Franc

Nice acidic bite with a good balance of fruit and a lot of oak. Almost more of a \”mellow zinfandel\” than a traditional Cabernet Franc.

Ehlers Estate 2005 Merlot

Classic Merlot with deep intense flavor of sweet ripe grapes and black cherries with green herbal notes. Perfect for a roasted chicken and roasted potatoes.

Ehlers Estate 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon

Very minty – from nose to plate to finish. A very \”correct\” and straighforward Cabernet Sauvignon.

Ehlers Estate 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon \”1886\”

Named after the year the original stone winery was built on the estate. A powerhouse meritage red style with plenty of sweet chocolate and oak flavors which linger on the long finish.
