This powerful, dense, concentrated effort needs bottle age but is an incredibly impressive 2017. Giving up lots of chocolaty dark fruits, violets, Asian spices, and loamy soils , it has a big, mouth filling mid-palate, ripe tannins, and a great finish. Try to hide the bottle for 4-5 years, but it should evolve for two decades.

“…we are happy to welcome back our Wild Iris Sauvignon Blanc. She is a wily one, undaunted by the fires, she completely escaped the smoke taint that destroyed our 2020 Cabernets. So bright, Wild Iris will carry our 2020 flag.” -Laurie Claudon

The 2018 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of a small barrel selection of the finest fruit from our vineyard. Deep and brooding, the 2018 Estate will have a long life, evolving over time.

As the foundation of the Ellman line-up with an intense garnet hue, it overdelivers with notes of cassis, cigar box and Chinese Five Spice—replete with hints of fennel, whole black peppercorns, star anise, cloves and cinnamon. Walking the tightrope of finesse with extreme power, the palate gives way to generous flavors of blackberry, cassis, cola and nuanced notes of musk, porcini and hibiscus, which interplay with the stately framework. This is a wine that commands respect, and will continue to reveal itself overtime.

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.

Focusing solely on the Ellman Estate vineyard, the perennial elegance of Jemma reigns supreme in the 2018 vintage. With a deep ruby hue, the 2018 Jemma gives way to a commingling 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

The 2017 Flanagan Cabernet has classic Cabernet notes of cedar, violets, and Christmas spices. The palate has Red and Black Current, Bay Leaf, and Tobacco. As always, the wine has a surprising amount of tannin structure for New World Cabernet. All of the Cabernet comes from hillside sites and the small berries produced from the steep, volcanic sites give the wine great color and concentration. This is a Cabernet that has the structure and secondary notes of a top Left Bank wine. Great farming, top vineyard sites, and restraint in the winemaking result in a balanced, age-worthy Cabernet.

This 2018 Bacigalupi Chardonnay has a nose of citrus and peach blossoms. The palate opens with fresh White peach and Meyer lemon with brioche toast on the finish. We aged the wine in Boutes cooperage for 11 months with 40% new barrels. Bacigalupi probably has the most classic Russian River profile of all Flanagan's Chardonnays. They believe in letting each site express itself. That means that each of their wines has a barrel program and wine chemistry unique to that vineyard site in a given vintage. This is terrific wine from one of Sonoma County’s top Chardonnay sites and will age gracefully for many years.
