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.
With an intense ruby caste, our 2017 Jemma has expressive aromatics of elderberries, black currants and a myriad of bramble fruits, peppered with hints of graphite, caramel and thyme. On the palate, it has a lush fruit profile of blackberry compote, plum clafoutis and a basket full of Bing cherries. Muscular and weighty on the palate, the dark fruit character is precisely framed by focused tannins and an enduring, lengthy finish. Aptly paired with a classic Beef Bourguignon or a simple dry-aged New York strip!
Our 2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of a small barrel selection of the finest fruit from our vineyard. With a lustrous, deep ruby hue, the 2017 is aromatically quite generous, with copious red fruits from pomegranates, Mirabelle plums and cranberries to more tertiary characters of wet stones, cigar box and terra cotta. Balancing its elegance with extreme power, the palate gives way to a myriad of fruit and floral notes from Tulare cherries and black currants to violets. Balanced with hints of espresso, dark chocolate and dried marjoram, it is replete with mouth-coating tannins and a lengthy finish. With incredible precision, this wine is to be enjoyed now and will continue to evolve for years to come.
