"Rich, pure and direct, with a pleasant dusty earth and cedary edge to the opulent blackberry, plum, licorice and spicy oak notes. There's plenty to admire here. Drink now through 2027.Enticing aromas of black currant preserves, violet pastil, savory crushed sage, and an oak influenced note of crème brulee. On the palate the wine is vibrantand dense with extra silky tannins enhanced by the incorporation of Merlot in the blend. Enjoy now and over the next decade."

Wine Facts

THIS WINE IS NAMED FOR CRAIG HALL’S MOTHER, Eleanor “Ellie” Hall, who was an artist and a teacher. She inspired Craig’s love of art and it is her artwork that graces this wine’s label. Crafting this blend is an exercise in texture. Vineyard sources are selected for their elegance with tannins that are soft, lush, opulent and feminine in character. The palate is driven by minerality, cassis, and a floral perfume.

Bottle Size 750 ML
Appellation Napa Valley
Barrel Aging 22 Months in 70% New French Oak
Varietal Composition 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot

    Spence's Spin on "Ellie's"

    "Ellie's" is a beautiful example of what a Cabernet Sauvignon should be. The delicate floral aroma will lure you in. The soft attack mellows out into a fruit forward mid-palate showcasing dark fruit such as blackberry, plum, and casis. The finish lingers, as the tannin coats the mouth with velvet. All of this summed up in one word... "YUM!"

    Nice with a little bit of spice

    Ellie's is delicious! Smooth tannins and a subtle peppery finish. Can't believe that this wine is less than $100. Definitely a go-to wine when I want to impress friends and family.
