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.
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.
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 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.
