Winemaker’s Notes

This wine represents our Estate as a perfect picture of our vineyards and its soil diversity. That is why we called it Portrait! Each vintage we strive to capture the essence of the diverse soils, varietals and the unique terroir of Ehlers Estate. With a medium to full body and dark red color, it delivers concentrated aromas of ripe red fruit, raspberries, cherries, cassis, and smoky notes. We use only 40% new French oak, allowing the fruit to shine in the blend. Nice structured acidity; the mouth is dense with vibrant and complex flavors of red berries, smoky spices, and dried herbs. This wine has a long finish with dense silky tannins.

Blend: 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Cabernet Franc, 23% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot

Fresh, with a light savory streak amid the red currant and damson plum fruit, giving this a racy, focused profile. Shows a floral nuance in the background and a bright mineral edge on the finish. Relies on precision rather than bombast. Drink 2020 – 2030. Only 1,500 cases made.
