The 2019 Ehlers Estate Cabernet Franc has become one of those wines we get excited to make. 100% Cabernet Franc and selected from two of our best Cabernet Francs blocks. Modest yields and precise farming have brought out the best of this variety. Deep ruby in color with signature aromas of dry spice rack, dry herbs, violets, and unripe berries. Mineral in aroma and flavor, with graphite and dark cocoa powder. Oak and red fruit entangle with the herbs. Concentrated flavors with a full-body and well-balanced tannin structure. The 2019 is very complex but elegant with a velvety, long finish. Ready to drink now, though the extra oak aromas and flavors will benefit from some cellaring making the wine more luscious. This wine will age exceptionally well for 15-20 more years. Unfined/Unfiltered.
