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 an opportunity to enjoy delicious wine paired with whatever the mood and culinary creation comes out of the kitchen.
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 Cleary Freestone Ranch Pinot Noir 2019Deep garnet with a slight purple undertone, seductive notes of red plums, red cherries, ripe blackberries laced with red roses and mushrooms. 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.
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.
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.
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.
Joyce Vineyard Chardonnay 2019
Bright and clear, pale white-gold in color. Subtle aromas of flowers, sour apples, celery root and Asian pears, laced with intense mineral aromas and the hint of sea. Energetic, vibrant acidity yet finessed and elegant on the palate with the complexity of fresh tangerines and Meyer lemons, and nuanced salinity.
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.
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.
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.
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.
