Emblem Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

After the grapes were gently hand-harvested, de-stemmed and crushed, the juice fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with an extended post-fermentation maceration that beautifully married flavors and tannins, giving our Emblem Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon its lovely, seamless texture. Malolactic fermentation in barrel, combined with 15 months aging in French oak (66% new), further concentrated the wine's rich cassis and blackberry cobbler flavors, adding subtle nuances of torched crème brûlée. Through numerous barrel tastings and blending trials, a final blend that includes Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and Petit Verdot helps make this wine accessible today for immediate drinking while still maintaining the Cabernet structure for extended cellaring.

Dense ruby/purple with attractive, pure blackcurrant fruit, wrapped with toasty oak, this medium to full-bodied 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Emblem Valley plays it tight to the vest, but has excellent structure, purity and richness. Give it 2–3 years cellaring and drink it over the following 10–15 years.
