The 2018 vintage possesses a beautiful balance of ripeness and elegance. Aromas of dried roses, geranium and potpourri rise above boysenberry, cherry, and plum fruit notes. In its youth, it is laser focused and firmly structured. In the glass it gradually unfolds displaying its richness and concentration - and hinting of the rewards of patience with this wine. Look for greater depth to develop over the next 3 - 10 years.
The first premium, “Méthode Provencale” California Rosé. Elan and Julien 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. We’ve produced this Sauvignon Blanc to be a true and pure expression of the varietal, with exotic fruits with a long and lingering finish.
The 2017 blend was handcrafted from small lots harvested exclusively from ultra premium Hillside blocks in the Eastern Vaca Mountain range. Expect to find a dark purple color, intense black and blueberries, white pepper spice, violets, vanilla, toasty French oak, white chocolate, a broad mid palate with balanced acidity, depth of flavor, and a fleshy sexy round finish.
The 2018 Sun Chase Pinot Noir is a massive, complex, nuanced wine of black cherry, orange peel, pine needle, black plum, slate, black tea. The incredibly silky entry opens to a seamless palate with tremendous length, with flavors of plum, clove, forest floor, morello cherry, tangerine oil, and rose oil, which persist for over a minute following the finish.
The 2019 UV Vineyard Chardonnay is a gorgeous, intense, racy wine of great purity. The nose is layered with lemon curd, lemon zest, orange blossom, Asian pear, oyster shell, and raw almond. On the palate, the wine is ample, yet with great tension and drive, with acidity lifting flavors of lemon curd, hazelnut, fresh pear, and pastry flour with just a hint of fresh sage.
“…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 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.
The 2019 Caryn Renae Sauvignon Blanc harkens an endless summer. Its brilliant lemon hue sparkles at the meniscus. Aromatics of boxwood, bergamot and a subtle gardenia alight the nose, and place you immediately at the shore of your choosing. The palate has notes ranging from blood orange and green papaya, to lemon meringue pie and pâte de fruit au pamplemousse with mouth-watering acidity and an expansive palate. The end result leaves you feeling piqued for a seaside picnic, and on the verge of a jaunt amongst the waves!
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.
The 2017 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon offers amazing floral aromas of violets, ripe blackberry, rich chocolate, truffle, and a hint of tobacco leaf. Beautiful flavors of black cherry & cocoa are framed by structured, opulent & elegant tannins. The finish is very complex, balanced and lingers on your palate for more than 45 seconds. This wine is a classic example of Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the western hillsides of Oakville.
