2020 Brothers Blend Proprietary Red Blend
86% Cabernet Sauvignon 12% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc (ELLMAN Estate Vineyard)
The 2020 Brothers Blend is dark, dense and aromatic—a reflection of the growing season that was in and of itself intense and dramatic. On the nose, we find dark, ripe blackberry and blueberry notes, along with nutmeg, sassafras, fresh-cut cedar, and hints of camphor. The wine is tightly wound on the palate, but with time in the glass, the tannins soften as it becomes plush and generous. The fruit flavors carry forward, with the black fruit flavors riding alongside the notes of baking spices and incense. Even with the highly structured tannins, there is a richness and purity that makes the wine accessible now, and it is clear that the wine will continue to open up over years in the bottle.
