2013 Ellman Family Vineyards Brothers Blend Proprietary Red, Napa Valley

$55.00

We tend to call this wine our “tribute to Pomerol”. Named for “brothers”, Neil and Lance Ellman, this wine is our younger sibling to our Jemma Cabernet. This wine offers a larger concentration of Merlot making it a more approachable wine for everyday enjoyment.

TASTING NOTES: Bright, medium ruby color with purple overtones. The wine offers generous aromas of violet, plum, anise, cassis, and mint with restrained floral overtones. On the palate, it is light and well-balanced clean fruit. Medium body and ripe tannins with juicy plum, blackberry and dusty coffee notes in the background, all magnified on a long, subtle finish.
