The 2018 Red Blend O.P.C. races out of the glass with an exotic mélange of red cherry, raspberry, rose petals, cinnamon and blood orange. The tannins are potent, but there is just enough fruit to balance things out. Give it a few years to soften.
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
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 2016 Serenity Way has an expressive nose of rose hips, red cedar, anise and Bergamot. On the palate there are red and black fruits like red currant and black plum skin. There are also savory tobacco notes. The finish is long and clean. It reminiscent of the brilliant 2009 Serenity Way. Vintage after vintage Serenity Way displays elegance, power, and balance. The wine, like all Flanagan wines, is built on great fruit, restraint in wine making, balance, and ageability. If you think that Sonoma County can’t produce Cabernet to rival to Napa then you need to think again. The best mountain sites in Sonoma are producing wines that marry the elegance and nuance of Bordeaux with the consistent ripeness achievable in the North Coast.
In typical bold fashion, the 2017 Audere comes out guns blazing with lots of extract, some serious tannin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. This blend hails from ultra-premium, volcanic Napa areas such as the Pritchard Hill area, Howell Mountain, Atlas Peak, and Rockwell Ridge estate vineyard (35 feet below Howell Mountain). It is an exuberant, rich wine with red cherries, oodles of black fruits, and coffee notes. Very reminiscent of the inaugural 2013 Audere, this is sure to please even the biggest Sideways-Loving, Merlot-Hater!
The 2017 Signature Mountain Blend is once again a delectable representation of what our Estate Rockwell Ridge Vineyard (blended with Howell Mountain, Pritchard Hill, & Atlas Peak fruit) can produce, making this wine very near and dear to our hearts. This limited case produced wine holds its own on the Hertelendy line up. Claimed by the critics as a “beautiful wine that “...explodes from the glass”. It’s the closest wine in our program that could be called an “Estate wine” with most of the blend coming from our very own Rockwell Ridge estate vineyard located 35 feet below the Howell Mountain AVA. Dubbed by many over the years as “The Petrus of Napa Valley”, we are thrilled to get this wine from our Estate to yours.
This red wine expresses the traditional marriage of the Bordeaux varieties. Soft and full like a new blossom, fresh mint mingles with lofty red fruits, Bing cherry, and black plum. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon for power and complexity, Cabernet Franc for finesse, and Merlot for softness.
This Napa Blend is drinking wonderfully now and will age beautifully for many years. The aroma explodes with ripe cassis, blackberry, plum and a hint of cedar. The intense dark fruit is complimented by subtle hints of clove, toast, and soft vanilla. The palate is full and round with silky tannins that envelope the intense core of fruit that carries through to an incredibly long finish.
Baking spice, marmalade and rich cherry pie layer the mouthfeel. Ripe fig, tobacco leaf, and a slightly smoked meat quality in the finish. Round and supple with velvety tannins. Good structure should reward aging over the next decade.
The 2017 prop Red boasts a saturated purple color, with a seriously hedonistic, full bodied sexy profile laced with notions of Creme De Casis, Black Currants, lavender, and hints of Licorice, while the palate has a terrific intensity, full bodied richness and building tannins, all the while holding onto a beautiful sense of elegance and balance. Power & Grace.
This 2017 Riley's Rows "3x3" Proprietary Red Blend North Coast, is an awesome reflection of some of our favorite North Coast vineyard sites. A blend of Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a delicious cuvee with great balance between fruit, tannin, and acidity.
