The Ellman Brothers Blend presents an alluring deep ruby hue, suggesting the depth and complexity that await the palate. On the nose, this Ellman Cabernet blend exudes an intoxicating mix of ripe black cherries, cassis, and a hint of dark chocolate, intermingled with subtle notes of baking spices, indicative of its aging in 60% new French Oak barrels. The geology of the Ellman Family Vineyard, characterized by fine sand, silt, and pebbly clay, imparts a unique terroir-driven character to the wine.
Upon tasting, the Ellman Family Vineyards Brothers Blend reveals its full splendor. The palate is greeted with a broad, expansive array of flavors, mirroring its aromatic complexity. Rich notes of dark fruit, particularly black cherry, blend harmoniously with a touch of dark chocolate. The rounded tannins, a result of the meticulous 22-month aging process, provide a smooth, lengthy finish, making this Ellman wine both immediately enjoyable and suitable for aging.
The 2021 vintage was a year of both challenges and triumphs for Ellman vineyards. The early spring and warm summer, marked by accelerated phenolic development, have bestowed the wine with both freshness and richness, a duality that is rarely achieved. The handwork and organic farming practices in the vineyard have truly brought life and vibrancy to this Ellman Family Vineyard creation.

I loved the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Blend, which comes from vines near Soda Canyon, just off the Silverado Trail. It has beautiful black and blue fruits, a kiss of minerality, notes of violet, and even an Oakville-like black olive character, as well as medium to full body and a great finish. I wasn't able to get prices for these Ellman releases, but I suspect this will be a smoking value. It's impeccably made and capable of evolving for 10-12 years at a minimum.
