Unique Offers Ernest Eugenia Edaphos
This summer we'll be sharing a "Summer Bundle" each week from our current releases and library of wines, a mix of Ernest, Eugenia, and Edaphos. They're curated thoughtfully by our team and we'll share the stories of how the bundle was created along with how the wines are drinking today. These bundles are in groups of 3 or 6, but priced so well that you can enjoy them any time and even share with friends as you celebrate life this summer.
The Last Summer Bundle"I wanted to visit and linger on some of our more refreshing and summertime wines...." ~Naomi "Hot weather has never kept me from indulging in my preferred red wines..." ~ Erica
Ernest Vineyards specializes in site-specific wines. Each of our wines comprises grapes from one vineyard and one vineyard only. 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. The result: Wines that are pure expressions of the sites from which they came.
Henry David Vineyard Aligoté 2019
Bright and clear, hinting at white golden color, with an exuberant nose of orchard blossoms, Meyer lemon, and abundant minerality. Refreshingly light on the palate with citrus, textural apple, a hint of fresh herbs and bright acidity.
Cleary Ranch Chardonnay 2018
Romanini Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018
Pure vibrant garnet in color, restrained aromatics of pomegranate seeds, rhubarb, and dried cherries and earthier wet forest floor and mushrooms. Marked acidity is balanced with an intensity of red fruits, minerality, and long, elegant tannins.
H. Klopp Vineyard Chardonnay 2018
A color akin to white gold with bright silver hue. Clear minerality, unripe white peach, Asian pear, and a note of brioche on the nose. An abundance of minerals and acidity laced with tart, juicy citrus, sweet apple and pear marry with balanced creaminess and lingers for a long finish.

Fallenleaf Vineyard Chardonnay 2018
Bright canary yellow in color with deeper golden tones. Complex aromas of dried apricots, ripe yellow
apples, cantaloupe, and hay. Piercing acidity on the palate balances a full body with notes of Meyer lemon, sour apples
and candied pineapples.
Rayhill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017
Cleary Ranch Pinot Noir 2018
Ruby red with slight opacity and purple hues. Sour cherry, raspberry, and pomegranate interlaced with
earthier shiitake and floral undertones on the nose. Lush and juicy on the palate, with elegant, round tannins, assertive
acidity and generosity of fruit informing a texture that is lean, subtle, and decadent simultaneously.

Grand Vent Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018
Dynamic garnet with subtle brick red edges. Tremendously expressive of wild berry, hibiscus, red plum,
thyme, saddle leather, and wet earth aromatically. Assertive, but ripe, tannins with fresh acidity and sour fruit like unripe
strawberry, rhubarb, and dried cranberry define a sturdy, yet bright, texture.

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2018
Inspired by an incredible 3-acre property we've just added to the Ernest family, we introduce our first ever appellation Chardonnay. The Joyce Vineyard is the coldest site we've encountered in the West Sonoma Coast and one day will be an incredible source for sparkling wine. But, there's plenty to anchor our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay along with some blending from our two other cool-climate, maritime-influenced Chardonnay sites. This wine is 100% sourced and crafted from Ernest's core program without any additional external our bulk wine added for volume.
Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017
We produce Rosé and other fun wine projects, under the Eugenia label. Our current release, from the 2020 vintage, is our first Estate bottling of Rosé from the Cleary Freestone Ranch, made from Pinot Noir picked specifically for this Rosé.
