2009 AHLGREN
Cabernet Sauvignon

Santa Cruz Mountains,
Bates' Ranch

The 2009 Bates' Cab is typical of the wines produced from this vineyard. Some vintages are more spectacular than others, but every year the vineyard produces very fine grapes and wine. the wines drink well when young, and age well, growing remarkably more complex over the years. We have been buying these grapes since our first year and Bate's first commercial production, 1976, and it has been a privilege to join in establishing a reputation for great quality for both the vineyard and the winery.

2008 AHLGREN
Cabernet Sauvignon

Santa Cruz Mountains,
Bates' Ranch


Ironically, and unusually, we think that that this 08 Cab Sauvignon is the more elegant of the two 2008 Bates’ wines, though also big in tannins and acids with balancing fruit. So, it should be drinkable a bit earlier, than this release of the Cab Franc, we think. (See full disclosure above.) Both are sound and balanced wines that we expect to be alive and attractive for a very long time.

2001 AHLGREN RESERVE Cabernet Sauvignon

Santa Cruz Mtns Bates' Ranch

This wine from a fabulous vintage and a vineyard with a reputation for excellence with the Ahlgrens has been given an extra year of barrel age over the regular and spectacular 2001 Bates' which lifts the RESERVE to another level of complexity. Definitely not ready to drink yet. Needs another two or three years minimum of bottle age. Only 81 cases produced.

Very Limited Quantities.*
$85 per bottle

* The Ahlgrens are holding some small supplies of these Cabs for direct sale from the winery to their fans, which is why these older wines are available.


2008 AHLGREN
Cabernet Franc

Santa Cruz Mountains,
Bates' Ranch

Ahlgren Cabernet Franc from Bates’ Ranch has emerged as a favorite with hard core red wine lovers as well as all the others who drink red wines.

Curiously, this wine is a bit bigger than the ’08 Cabernet Sauvignon, being a half of a percent alcohol higher. Since the acids and tannins are big, balanced and the fruit adequate and still developing, we expect this wine to live long. Let us know what you think.

Unfined and unfiltered.

2009 AHLGREN
Cabernet Franc

Santa Cruz Mountains,
Bates' Ranch

There is much to respect regarding Ahlgren Cabernet Franc from Bates' Ranch. It has emerged as a favorite with hard core red wine lovers as well as all the others who drink red wines. compared to the Cab Francs grown in France, these Santa Cruz Mountains Cab Francs are big in flavor, full flavored and very distinguished. This may be the best of all places to grow this grape so far discovered. This vintage is no exception. it has a fruity, earthy bouquet, is well-balanced and very satisfying in the mouth.

84 cases produced.

2009 AHLGREN
Merlot

Santa Cruz Mountains


When the Bates family pulled their fabulous merlot vines in 2007, we were looking for another vineyard that could fill our Merlot needs. We were ale to obtain these Santa cruz Mountains grapes from Greg and Kathleen Starkey and feel lucky for that opportunity. We like this wine, and think you will too. it is drinking very nicely, and with good acid/tannin/fruit balance, we expect it to age well.

2008 AHLGREN
Zinfandel

Livermore Valley

Given the alcohol of 14.6, you would think that this is not a late harvest style, and you are correct. In contrast to the 2007 and the Non-vintage Zins, this wine shows no trace of that late harvest character. Also, it is dry, no residual sugar. The wine shows those lovely forward Zin fruit characteristics so typical of Livermore Zinfandels without that extra ripe plumy quality.

So, here we have a deep, rich bouquet and big, bright and complex fruity flavors; mouth filling, with balanced fruit and acid.

Unfined and unfiltered.
350 cases produced.

$28.50 per bottle.
