Winery Notes:

The 2018 1886 Ehlers Estate is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from different blocks on the Estate. There are a total of six clones of Cabernet Sauvignon planted at the Estate vineyard: 4, 8, 15, 169, 337, and See. I’ve selected the best barrels from these lots for this blend and the custom 1886 bottle is back - a unique wine deserves a special bottle! With a deep red-purple layer of color, the aroma of boysenberries, wild blackberries, dark cherries, and cassis with nuances of dry herbs, cedar, and spice rack. Firm tannins in the mouth, the taste is sweeter, with some white chocolate, mocha, and thyme. The finish is long and earthily mineral. Full body with smooth, balanced acidity. Enjoyable now, but better to wait some years. Aging potential: 15-20 years.

Bright, ripe and forward in feel, with a gush of warm cassis and plum puree flavors lined with red licorice and sweet toast accents. The fine-grained finish lets the fruit play out easily. Drink now through 2028. 1,200 cases made.
