2006 Ehlers Estate - Cabernet Sauvignon 1886
Wine Spectator | Rating: 87Ripe and zesty, with high-toned raspberry and blackberry fruit. Full-bodied, elegant and supple in texture, if leaving you hoping for more depth and complexity. Drink now through 2015. 2,100 cases made.Author: James Laube
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Ripe though not jammy. Powerful and dense, with muscular tannins and earthy minerality and tobacco to support the lush cherry liqueur and creamy vanillin notes. Big yet balanced. (LM)Author: Richard Hemming
