Highlights

  • The top of Block 4, the highest point of our estate, supplies the core wine for our 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon
  • One barrel from Block 4 always shines a little brighter than others, and this was it
  • This full-bodied wine is particularly spicy and complex, with rich, velvety tannins
  • Structure and balance befitting the best of our Ehlers Lane terroir

This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 60 bottles that will ever be made. Think of it as a bit of Napa Valley history in your cellar and celebrated in a glass with friends and family. Fruit from the top of Block 4, the highest point of Ehlers Estate property, supplies the core wine for their 1886 Cabernet Sauvignon. One barrel from Block 4 always shines a little brighter than others, and your Premiere Napa Valley wine is from that choice barrel. This full-bodied wine is particularly spicy and complex, with rich, velvety tannins and the structure and balance befitting the best of the Ehlers Lane terroir.

Winemaker, Kevin Morrisey

I have been the winemaker at Ehlers Estate, responsible for all grape growing and winemaking, since the start of 2009. After internships at Domaine Carneros and Chateau Petrus, I joined the winemaking team at Stags' Leap Winery. In 2003 I was recruited by Tony Soter to serve as his winemaker and director of operations at Etude Wines. Two years later I was asked back to Stags' Leap to take over as head winemaker, where I enjoyed an instrumental role in further building the reputation of that historic property. In 2008, when the opportunity to make wines from the magnificent vineyards at Ehlers Estate was presented to me I leapt and never looked back!

Country born: United States

Education: MS Enology, UC Davis
Internship - Petrus
Internship - Domaine Carneros

Years in the wine industry: 15-20 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
My wines are balanced, structured, complex and faithful expressions of terroir. International style meets California sunshine. Sophisticated wines, big wines, ageworthy, never over-ripe, 100% estate, organic and biodynamic.
