2015 Ehlers Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 1886

Share on Facebook


 




2015 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon




Dark black and scarlet color, rich and complex, this is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet with an underlying earthiness and soft fat tannins woven around a black plum and red fruit melody and built on a firm acidic framework. Long finish, lingering impressions of cinnamon, coffee, and dark chocolate. A classic Ehlers Estate 1886 that will continue to improve for decades.



Notes on the Vintage



2015 was another great vintage in the Napa Valley. Another drought year that started out unseasonably warm, prompting the vines to get started historically early. The weather was beautifully sunny and mild all summer long, and most of us finished picking our vineyards weeks ahead of any vintage in memory. The crop was small and concentrated, the resulting wines are intense, concentrated, and complex.
