Ehlers Sylviane St. Helena Napa Valley 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Pretty fruity on the nose with hints of black currant, dried herb, fennel seed and smoke lending this a bit of a sophisticated edge. Much more crisp on the palate than the nose might lead you to believe, with a soft richness grounded by good acidity and some fine tannins. There’s plenty of rose petal-tinged blackberry fruit on the palate and a bright, juicy finish that has a little Jolly Rancher wild grape going on before the citrussy acids cleanse the palate. Nice if in a slightly rich style. 90pts
