These three single-vineyard Ernest wines were selected to give you flexibility, variety and an opportunity to enjoy delicious wine paired with whatever the mood and culinary creation comes out of the kitchen.



Bohemian Series

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.

A plethora of juicy red fruits highlighted by the brightest acidity and supple tannins yield an assertive, complex, elegant experience on the palate with decadent flavors and a vibrant, lingering finish.



Ernest

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 tannins frame it all without being over the top. The power of the wine comes from its concentration and complexity of flavors.

Eugenia

We produce our seasonal Rosé under the Eugenia label, named after Erin's grandmother. Our current release, from the spectacular 2021 vintage, is a return to our roots with "The Motley" a blended Sonoma Coast Rosé of Pinot Noir.  

Rosé of Pinot Noir 2021 The Motley - Ernest Vineyards
$24.00   750mL

Rosé of Pinot Noir 2021
Sonoma Coast

Pale pink wine with subtle combination of citrus, Honeycrisp apple, and light hints of fresh herbs and wild raspberries on the nose. The cool, maritime freshness on the palate focuses on coastal minerality and pretty, bright fruits wrapped with delightfully low alcohol and vibrant acidity.



Edaphos

In addition to Ernest and Eugenia, we own and operate a third label: Edaphos (pronounced ee-dah-fos). It means “base,” “ground,” and “soil” in Greek; we felt it was a good expression of our attitude behind this winemaking. We consider this part of our business to be our “laboratory,” the place where we make small-lot wines that incorporate new and exciting approaches to winemaking with different styles and off-beat grape varietals. Sometimes we also call it our “sandbox.” The Edaphos strategy enables us to explore, experiment, and apply some of the lessons we learn to wines we make under our other labels. It also allows us to produce different wines whenever we feel like making them.
