Lightly spiced and fruity aromas of strawberry and bright cherry mix with hazelnut and fresh herbs as an introduction to this hedonistic blend of fresh fruit and earthy spice. The wine opens to a broad and soft mid-palate of black cherry, cassis, and fresh wild strawberry. The palate is elevated and brightened with a refreshing acidity that welcomes this wine to the table. The finish brings out dried flowers, fresh berries, sweet cranberry orange, allspice and cinnamon.
Over the next few years, development will keep revealing sensual subtleties hidden in layers beneath the robust fruit.
Bright notes of Bing cherry, hints of rose petal and delicate spices dance above the glass. Hints of cinnamon, cardamom and anise follow below and echo on the palate. As the wine slowly opens up, the red berry fruit becomes increasingly generous as does the mid-palate notes of tea, and potpourri. The 2019 vintage will be best decanted in advance if enjoyed near term, or allow the wine additional bottle time as it continues to unfold greater richness and depth.
The first premium, “Méthode Provencale” California Rosé. Elan Fayard founded Azur Wines, and became the first producer to bring the true and authentic Provencale technique of rosé wine production to the United States. Since the first vintage in 2007, Azur Rosé has been comprised of grapes selected and harvested for 100% dedicated rosé wine production.
The wine greets you with a delicate nose which hints at strawberry, white peach, and golden raspberry. The very first sip shows the finesse of this wine.
An elegant wine with bright aromatics that tease the nose with tropical scents. An entry on the palate that is crisp and refreshing, offering vibrant honeydew and zest of citrus. This Sauvignon Blanc was produced to be a true and pure expression of the varietal, with exotic fruits with a long and lingering finish.
Hues of dark eggplant with touches of amethyst at the rim give an immediate sense of richness and elegance. This is confirmed with a nose of ripe, dark fruit, roasted coffee and chocolate, macerated raspberries, violets and spicy highlights. The soft, velvety entrance evolves into a fresh mid-palate filled with raspberry, red currant and boysenberry. This lingers towards a dark blackberry reduction with a touch of earthiness on the long, yummy finish.
Predominantly Pinot Noir, we've blended in a touch of Chardonnay to lift the fruit profile. The distinct creaminess of this wine is undeniable. Lush in floral aromatics, it is aged longer in barrel and in bottle giving it a rich savory edge with curious depth of flavor and complexity. Unfortunately we won't have access to these grapes in the future but are very pleased with how stunning this wine has become over time. It is ready to drink now, but will develop into something even more intriguing with age.
Their 2021 Pét Nat Pinot Grigio is a fresh and clean example of pétillant naturel wine. Bottled with primary yeast sediment, it shows lovely yeast flavors characteristic of bottle aging. Early picking allows this wine to carry low alcohol along with an adunbance of energy and lightness.
Their signature critter is back for its fourth year! As the statewide drought continues to challenge our growers, less water means smaller berries. However, it also means greater concentration of flavor. Their Albariño from Gomes Vineyard is electric in freshness, luscious with ripe tropical fruit, yet light on the palate. We feel that the 2021 vintage has amplified these characteristics, making it the best version of itself to date.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Eternity comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant scents of warm cassis, baked plums and stewed blackberries, with hints of fruitcake and exotic spices. Full-bodied, opulent, and super concentrated, with plush tannins and sweet, spicy black fruits, it finishes long and fantastically showy.
The 2018 Sage Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a graceful and agile wine with wonderfully wild aromatics and energy. The nose opens with a brambly thicket of berries, delicate licorice root and spicy, smoky spice.
A juicy mouthful of purple and red fruits centers the core, with gentle touches of sweet fennel, tobacco and minerals offering nuance and depth. Well-integrated tannins blend seamlessly with the fruit core, and finish with a final whisper of berries and anise.
The 2019 Brother’s Blend is the perfect introduction to the Ellman Family Vineyards line-up. With the core blend from the Estate vineyard coupled with a neighboring Coombsville site, the 2019 is approachable, and then some. Offering up a deep ruby cast and intense aromatics from dark fruits like blackberries and currants to baking spice—think cinnamon, vanilla and clove!— and a hint of woodsy, herbals notes like thyme, fresh earth and cigar box. Generous on the palate, complexity abounds with lush red and black fruits, from dark, sweet cherries to bramble fruits and a slew of plum varieties, giving way to notes of pie crust, cacao, as well as hints of roses and violets. With a creamy texture and juicy nature, it packs excellent density without a rough edge in sight. With mouth-coating tannins giving way to a fresh finish, it pairs harmoniously with your favorites on the grill— be they of an herbivore’s or an omnivore’s delights— and will have you dreaming of a braai any day of the week
