Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley opens with a black cherry bouquet with hints of plum, leather and cedar. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and approachable. The flavor profile is a mild black currant and tea blend with notes of minerality and oak. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins build up and last for quite some time. The Panel suggested pairing his Cab with a porterhouse steak. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2014 Emblem Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exudes aromas of freshly muddled boysenberries, warm vanilla bean and toasty cardamom. The welcoming notes of this wine offer voluminous and supple aromas accompanied by rich tannins and dark fruits of plum and ripe dark brambly berries. Well balanced, with a soft and layered mouth feel make this wine a simply delicious expression of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Able to age or ready to enjoy now.
