There was a man named Ernest. He was an entrepreneur, a risk-taker and a role model for his grandson, Todd Gottula, who founded the Ernest Winery with his wife, Erin Brooks, back in 2012. Todd’s grandmother, Joanne, is The Artist in the family. Her path as an artist revealed itself later in life, but her talent shines through. Today her beautiful works grace their lives daily—she is the source of the portrait of Ernest that appears on all of the Ernest bottles.

THE VINEYARD: The Ernest Estate is anchored in the heart of the Freestone Valley, an area deeply defined by the extreme cold temperatures and blanketing fog from the chilly Pacific Ocean. The challenging growing conditions reward with wines of structure and restraint.

James Suckling 96 Points: “This is so subtle and complex with a super mouth-feel of creamy tannins, bright acidity and powdery texture. It’s medium-bodied with tangy and vivid fruit, but so reserved and attractive. Floral and vivid. Like fine silk at the end. Sophisticated. Seductive. Drink or hold.”

Wine Enthusiast “Cellar Selection” 95 Points: “Tempting black cherry and savory, woodsy flavors blend beautifully in this vivid, well-balanced and complex wine. A just-firm texture shows mild tannins and a crisp cranberry flavor that highlights the cherry, rosemary and mushroom notes. Aged in 40% new French barrels, it should be best from 2025.”

Winemaker Notes: “Deep 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.“

James Suckling 96 Points: “This estate bottling is fantastic, offering sliced lemon, cooked apple and apricot with energized acidity. Medium to full body with an intense and full finish. Lots of extract at the end. Exciting chardonnay. Drink or hold.”

Winemaker Notes: “An incredibly pale example of the varietal. Citrus notes and green herbs greet the nose from a lean and vibrant wine. It is floral and fruits with impeccable acidity and a delicate mouthfeel. Refreshing without being overtly acidic. Clean and fresh gets thrown around a lot these days but, in this case, it is the perfect description of this cool-climate Chardonnay.”
