Cabernet Sauvignon is the workhorse of Ehlers Estate. The 2004 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Winemaker Rudy Zuidema has carefully constructed this wine to allow all the varietals to complement one another and bring out the best flavor combination for this Cabernet.
The wine reflects the variety of clone and rootstock combinations that Ehlers Estate grows on their 39 acres. The luscious core of fruit is intense, elegant, and finely balanced. The mid palate bursts with plum, mocha, and spice with velvety flavors of cocoa, dark currant, and maple that make up the finish.
