THE WINES

PHILOSOPHY

Great wine has a strong sense of place, and we wanted ours to be rooted in what we value above anything else -- family and friendship. We believe great wine loves good food, thrives with meaningful company, and builds its best character in an environment of generosity and warmth. From our 15-acre vineyard in Napa Valley, we strive to make unique wines to pair with our best moments.

2016 ESTATE

NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

100% Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Ellman Estate). Our 2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of a tiny barrel selection of the finest fruit from our vineyard. With an intense, deep ruby hue, the 2016 exudes complex aromatics harkening the spectrum from cassis bud, orange peel and cerise to salumi—such as Lardo di Colonnata and Finocchinona. Balancing its truly refined nature with extreme power, the palate gives way to a myriad of fruit and floral notes from cherries and blackberries to hibiscus and violet, balanced with hints of cigar box, savory licorice and dried sage, and replete with mouth-coating tannins and a lengthy finish. This wine is incredibly focused; it can be enjoyed now, and possesses an age-worthy character to be enjoyed for years to come. Magnum and 3L formats available.

2016 JEMMA

NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

93% Cabernet Sauvignon (from Ellman Estate – 86% and Beckstoffer George III – 14%), 7% Merlot (from Hudson Vineyards). Our 2016 Jemma is marked by a deep ruby hue, with brooding, intense aromatics of spice and smoked charcuterie, laced with a dark fruit profile of cassis, pomegranate and bing cherries.  Muscular and weighty on the palate, the intense fruit character is precisely framed by polished tannins and an enduring, lengthy finish.  A happy pair with an impromptu date night and steak frites!

2016 BROTHERS BLEND

PROPRIETARY RED BLEND

87% Cabernet Sauvignon (Ellman Estate Vineyards and Stagecoach Vineyards), 9% Petit Verdot (Ellman Estate Vineyards), 4% Merlot (Hudson Vineyards). The 2016 Brothers Blend is a favorite at any table. It's readily approachable style makes it a perennial, emanating with notes of cassis, cocoa, sarsaparilla and a myriad of herbs reminiscent of Chartreuse. Bright and fresh on the palette, it abounds with a gamut of red and black fruits from cherries to blackberries and plums, with notes of incense, oolong and pencil lead. Walking the tight rope of a brooding, sultry expressive wine balanced by refreshing acidity and a tightly-wound core, the 2016 Brothers Blend pairs swimmingly with a range of fare from BBQ to roast duck.

2016 ALEXIS SKYE

SONOMA COAST PINOT NOIR

60% Sangiacomo Family Roberts Road Vineyard, 40% Catie’s Corner Vineyard.  The 2016 Alexis Skye Pinot Noir marries the two unique expressions of the vineyard sources seamlessly. The long, slow growing season of the Sangiacomo Family Roberts Road vineyard in the Petaluma Gap imparts deep, dark flavors, while the Catie’s Corner vineyard in Russian River Valley has a lightness of being that’s impeccable. With a deep ruby hue, the nose is replete with fruits ranging from red to black—dried cranberries, raspberries and dark cherries, as well as subtle floral notes of violets and wizened rose petals. Upon further observation, images of a hillside picnic with house-made soppressata and strawberry pie leap to mind. The palate is expansive with notes of blackberries, rosemary and cigar box, finishing with incredible focus and intensity, yeta broad palate weight.
