This full-bodied wine has a seamless structure, and boasts a delicate balance from beginning to end. It is bold and expressive, with fat, full tannins that are at once refined, silky, and subtle. This ‘1886’ is a classic, age-worthy Ehlers Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Filling out the layers of earthy complexity and spice are flavors of violets, chocolate cherries, cinnamon and cocoa.
91 points, Wine Spectator (Nov. 15, 2012): “Dense, herbal and smoky, offering deep, concentrated road tar, melted black licorice, gravel and dried berry flavors. Folds in savory herb notes and ends with chewy tannins.”
