Ehlers Estate Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena 1886 2004
This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Diamond Series selection. 94 Points, Wine News Magazine 94 Points, Wine Review Online – “This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon represents Ehlers Estate’s superduper cuvée… Its grandeur is immediately apparent in the layers of aromas that rise from the glass and reinforced by an incredible finish. In between, the ripe black fruit flavors are beautifully entwined with nuances of toasty oak, herbs and smoky elements. Polished tannins give it a glossy texture. With a stated alcohol only 0.2 percent less (14.7%) than their other wines, it is clear that the absolute level of alcohol should not be sole criteria for judging wines. It’s the overall balance, which in this case is impeccable, that makes a great wine.” 91 Points, Wine Spectator – "A ripe, zesty expression of Cabernet, with ripe cherry, plum and raspberry fruit that's clean, focused and refreshing, ending with an elegant mouthfeel and fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2014." “Today’s Recommended Wine”, Detroit News – “It’s clear this is no ordinary Cab. The purity of the wine sticks out. The nose is intense cassis, violets, dark chocolate and spicy/smoky new French oak. Mouthfeel is creamy, tannins are silky…It’s ever so appealing, full-bodied and still a babe but highly approachable.
Very nice dark fruit, smooth, silky, like velvet.
Thick, ruby color with everlasting finish. Velvet, smooth and lucious dark berries. A wonder on the nose. This wine must be aired for at least 30-45 minutes for full effect.
