Ernie Els Proprietor's Blend 2014
Inky deep, black cherry hue and purple rim. Dark blue fruits, a hint of bacon, espresso and fig jam abound the nose. Classy oak notes and a touch of truffle further tussle with the amazing fruit purity.The palate shows fleshy tannins, a rock-solid core, and towering structure. The Shiraz adds a spicy, complex, and exotic edge, and the remaining Bordeaux varieties give finesse and depth. Sugar coated blueberries line the intense finish.
55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Shiraz, 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot. Ernie Els Wines has been synonymous for creating acclaimed red wines for over a decade. In 1999, the concept of Ernie Els Wines was born. With the help of award-winning winemaker, Louis Strydom, the maiden 2000 vintage of Ernie Els Signature (a classic Bordeaux blend) was produced. The synergy between the wine and Ernie's classic golf swing were apparent—He has even been quoted as saying that "wine is like golf—in both endeavors nature has the last ruling."
