2020 Caryn Renae Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc
85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Sauvignon Musque
The 2020 Caryn Renae Sauvignon Blanc invokes summer on the nearest horizon, full stop. Its brilliant lemon hue sparkles beckoningly at the meniscus. Aromatics of gooseberry, lemongrass, and nascent orange blossoms flourish from the glass, and usher you to a relaxed state of mind, wherever you may find yourself. The palate ranges from lemon curd to candied lemon peel and green papaya, with a soupcon of creaminess and bright minerality— all coalescing in a crescendo of great focus and great intensity. The perfect entrée into an evening, with a nimble ability to pair with myriad seaside and garden fare, in spades!
The 2018 Brothers Blend is an apt entrée into the Ellman line-up of wines. Approachable, and then some, it offers a deep, opaque violet cast, billowing with intense aromas of crème de cassis, blackberries, espresso and cigar box. On the palate, complexity abounds with lush red and black fruits, from cranberry and raspberry to black cherries and plums, giving way to notes of cacao, as well as hints of herbal and floral notes such as rosemary and violet. Incredibly soft and polished, it packs excellent density without a rough edge in sight. With mouth-coating tannins giving way to a fresh finish, it pairs instantly with your favorites on the grill from a nice boerewors or Presa Iberico, to the garden’s bounty, like summer squash and zucchini.
2018 Jemma Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Ellman Estate)
Focusing solely on the Ellman Estate vineyard, the perennial elegance of Jemma reigns supreme in the 2018 vintage. With a deep ruby hue, our 2018 Jemma gives way to a comingling of sweet and savory notes. Copious aromatics of freshly picked violets, cassis and black cherries emanate from the glass, with a soupçon of espresso, sassafras and dry-aged salumi. Effusive on the palate, it has a lush profile of a myriad of bramble fruits, like a billowing whiff from jostling a crate of blackberries, coupled with hints of cardamom, allspice and cacao. Muscular and weighty, the dark fruit character is precisely framed with focused yet velvety tannins and an enduring, lengthy finish. Aptly paired with a classic Beef Wellington or maitakes on the grill.
