Ehlers pops off campus to grab a little non-estate fruit (18%) from Oakville and Yountville to round out this dusty, dark Cabernet Sauvignon. The first sip is earthy and mineral, leaning into blueberries and dark chocolate on the finish. Cedar, spices and herbs swirl around a boysenberry core in the mouth, while aromas of black pepper add further complexity. Tannins and structure point to a nice long future, but this is already delicious.
