The 2017 Brothers Blend is a favorable introduction to the Ellman suite of wines. An instant favorite in any setting, it’s filled with aromatics of black cherries, cassis and star anise. The expansive palate ranges from freshly picked blackberries and boysenberries to dark chocolate and baking spice. With substantial heft yet refreshing acidity, it maintains a versatile style, pairing well with your favorite choice for the brai, be it ribeye or barbequed spare ribs, even Maitake mushrooms!
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!
The nose has notes of lavender and rose hips along with fragrant red fruits. The palate has red and black current with black tea and soy notes. The 2013 Serenity Way is rich and intense.... and at the same time elegant. This wine can proudly stand with great Cabernet-based wines from anywhere on earth. Try it in a lineup of top Bordeaux and Super-Tuscan’s just for fun!
The 2015 Flanagan Cabernet has beautiful floral notes intertwined with more tempting herbal notes. The Palate has ripe red and black fruits, savory bay leaf and earth notes along with lots of structure.
The 2015 Vintage started with a cool spring that limited crop yields severely... especially in the Sonoma Coast. The lower crop yields produced an intense vintage with riper fruit profiles. Platt 2015 yields were 53 tons for the 31.3 acres of vines or about 1.8 tons per acre.
The 2016 Flanagan Bennett Valley Merlot has beautiful aromatic notes of bergamot, black raspberry, and bay leaf. The palate has ripe red currants and black plum with lots of structure. The acidity provides beautiful delineation and tension in the mouth. The small berries produced from the steep, volcanic hillside site gives the wine great color and concentration. This is a generous, age worthy, world-class Merlot.
The wine is aged in Atelier Centre France and Chassin cooperage for 14 months with 50% new barrels. The Platt site, like Grand Cru Chablis sites, is expressive of the vineyard terrior and reflective of a balanced barrel regime. Each site is allowed to express itself and that means that each of the wines has a unique barrel program and wine chemistry that reflect that particular site in a given vintage.
The Flanagan 2016 Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay was barrel fermented in 50% new French oak and aged sur lie in barrel for 11 months. This wine displays the classic Ritchie Vineyard attributes of rich, lush texture with great acidity. The palate offers Bartlett pear notes and ripe citrus. The minerality unique to the volcanic soils of this legendary Sonoma County vineyard completes the palate. This wine is a stunner.
The 2016 Flanagan Pinot Noir Sun Chase Vineyard displays the characteristic red fruit profile of the site. The nose is dominated by pomegranate, Bing cherry, and red raspberry and those notes continue of the palate. The wine is very pretty, nicely focused, and finishes with good acidity. This is a wine that is easy to enjoy with or without food.
