The “1886” Cabernet Sauvignon represents the pinnacle of Ehlers Estate winemaking, and their tradition of power, grace, and sophistication continues with the 2005 vintage. Crafted from a selection of the winery’s finest estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a dense, powerful wine with a fanatical cult-like following. A renowned wine from a winery with a remarkable cause, Ehlers Estate is setting a new standard for industry success.

94-Points, Wine Review Online — “This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon represents Ehlers Estate’s superduper cuvée... Its grandeur is immediately apparent in the layers of aromas that rise from the glass and reinforced by an incredible finish. In between, the ripe black fruit flavors are beautifully entwined with nuances of toasty oak, herbs and smoky elements. Polished tannins give it a glossy texture. With a stated alcohol only 0.2 percent less (14.7%) than their other wines, it is clear that the absolute level of alcohol should not be sole criteria for judging wines. It’s the overall balance, which in this case is impeccable, that makes a great wine.”

91-Points, Wine Spectator — “A ripe, zesty expression of Cabernet, with ripe cherry, plum and raspberry fruit that’s clean, focused and refreshing, ending with an elegant mouthfeel and fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2014.
