Wine Shop Bohemian Series Ernest Eugenia Edaphos
Ernest Vineyards specializes in site-specific wines. Each of our wines comprises grapes from one vineyard and one vineyard only. The result: wines that are pure expressions of the sites from which they came. We have our limited production and best of the barrel Bohemian Series, our single vineyard Burgundian varietals, our summery Eugenia Rosé, and our unique second label collection, Edaphos. Cheers to whatever bottling you choose!
Intro to Ernest Three PackThese three single-vineyard Ernest wines were selected to give you flexibility, variety and a start to your Ernest journey.
Intro to Ernest Mixed CaseThis is the ultimate introduction to Ernest Vineyards. These single-vineyard wines were selected for a complete immersion into our line of high-acid, low-alcohol Sonoma Coast wines.
Beginning with the 2019 vintage, Ernest introduces The Bohemian Series to celebrate the outstanding moments in the cellar from a particular vineyard. The Series will always embrace fluidity, each vintage will hold its unique inspiration and the varied bottlings will reflect what rises to the height of exceptional while in barrel for the most elevated experience of the vineyard and vintage.
Bohemian Series H. Klopp Vineyard Chardonnay 2019Starbright in color with notes of yellow apples, river stones, lemon curd and cream with a hint of warmth on the nose from very restrained oak. Sophisticated and complex on the palate with persistent acidity, velvety texture, and bright, refreshing, concentrated fruits and minerals.
Bohemian Series Alder Springs Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019Dense and opaque with a deep purple color, it suggests a wine with a youthful expression of the varietal. Aromatically subtle with notes of blackberries, mountain pine, black plums, cedar and a touch of pepper. The palate is a balance of black fruits and structural elements, with medium acidity. The tannins are gripping but round and ripe in nature. This is a Cabernet made with a lot of restraint and with a clear focus on elegance.
For our Ernest labels, we use grapes from seven sites in all. Some sites are valley floor, some are on hillsides. Some face west, all are considered cold-climate. We work closely with growers and vineyard managers at each site to dial-in the farming to adhere to a style that maximizes flavor ripeness while keeping sugars down and acidity high.
Fallenleaf Vineyard Chardonnay 2019
A beautiful bright and pale yellow wine, clear with shades of vintage gold. On the nose, a hint of white flowers, pears and pink lady apples with clear mineral notes of river pebbles and cut granite. On the palate a refreshing expression of the grape: a fruit profile consistent with the aromas and a pleasant acidity. The juicy and youthful mid-palate does not take away from the refined natured of this vintage. The finish lingers on the palate with a clean and thirst-quenching profile.
Cleary Ranch Chardonnay 2018
Cleary Freestone Ranch Pinot Noir 2019
Garnet in color revealing focused red cherry, plums, wild bramble, and undisturbed forest floor on the nose. The cool growing season delivers supple tannins framing bright, natural acidity and a purity of fruit traced with ginger and nutmeg.
Grand Vent Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019
A crimson color with intense purple hues. The aromas are reminiscent of black plums and dried roses. A leafy quality followed by other deeper red and black fruits, both fresh and dried. On the palate, a juiciness to the quality of the fruit, accompanied by spice, and herbal notes of wild sage and black peppercorn. The acidity is bright, highlighting the freshness of the fruit. The tannins frame it all without being over the top. The power of the wine comes from its concentration and complexity of flavors.
We produce our seasonal Rosé under the Eugenia label, named after Erin's grandmother. Our current release, from the 2022 vintage, includes an old-world style Rosé of Pinot Noir, and the return of a fan-favorite, our Rosé of Cinsault from the Certified Green Bruella Ranch.
