    Winemaker Notes

    A powerful and intense wine with a terrific sense of balance. The aromatic invitation has shades of sage, earth and cedar although clearly driven by dark currant and black cherry. A very concentrated mid-palate focuses on blueberry, plum and black fruit. The rich and round finish includes sweet leather, cedar and fresh spice notes wrapped up with a hint of creamy oak.

    Ehlers Estate, California
    In 1886, Bernard Ehlers completed planting the vineyards and constructed the stone winery building, which remains today as the focal point of the Estate. When Ehlers passed away in 1901, he left the Estate to his wife Anna, who maintained the property for the next 15 years. In 1923, local resident Alfred Domingos purchased the land from Anna Ehlers. Since home winemaking was legal, Domingos and his brother "bootlegged" wine and brandy to a growing stream of Bay Area visitors. In fact, so many tourists came to Napa Valley to obtain illegal alcohol that the Carquinez Bridge was erected to facilitate transportation.

    The early 1970s brought a revived interest in California wines, and the Estate became home to a number of small new wineries including Conn Creek Winery, Saintsbury, and Stratford Winery. In 1982, Parisians Jean and Sylviane Leducq established the Prince Michel Vineyards and Winery in Virginia. Their goal was to marry their Gallic passion for fine wine and food with American history. Under the direction of French enologist Jacques Boissenot, in 1987, the Leducqs purchased 7 acres of vineyard that were part of the original land tract belonging to W.W. Lyman.

    In May 2001, the original stone winery and estate home built by Bernard Ehlers was purchased, thus reuniting the Estate. The stewardship of Ehlers Estate is now in the hands of the Leducq Foundation.

    Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

    Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
