Our selection is a spectacular offering by the Ehlers Family of Lodi fame. One of the things we love so much about these guys is that even though they were founded over 100 years ago in Lodi by Herman Ehlers, they traverse the state to find the best grapes they can in order to make the best wine possible.
There are a lot of people in the wine business who believe that their wine is the best that their area is the best and so on. It's nonsense. The "best" is only one person's opinion, maybe more, but it's still an opinion. The Ehlers will have none of that. They know they make great wine in Lodi, but they love the Pinot Noir from the Russian River, and so that's where they go to get it.
The Russian River is on the Northern Coast of Sonoma, barely five miles from the ocean. It is considered one of the finest areas in California for growing Pinot Noir and that's something that few can disagree with. One only need to look at several wine publications' praises for Pinot Noir and the impressive number of wines that hail from the Russian River.Ours is a classic with all the tell-tale strawberry and raspberry flavors that are so vibrant it's almost like someone is squeezing them on your tongue. Then comes the soft waves of candied citrus, green tea and spice, all of which are making their way toward roast duck with dried cherries or a lamb Bolognaise.
