Emblem Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Milk chocolate and red currant preserve aromas with clove and cinnamon spice, black cherry, savory earth and blueberry on the nose. Medium plus body in the mouth with loads of character and fresh fruit flavors of cherry, blackberry and black currant, tart acidity adding another dimension and plum fruit riding through to the dense finish of chocolate, espresso and oak spice. Nice balance and complexity. 91 pts

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.

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. The wine’s rich cassis and blackberry cobbler flavors, add subtle nuances of torched crème brûlée. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah, 4% Zinfandel & 4% Petit Verdot.
