The Emblem Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford is rich, sophisticated and earthy, with concentrated dark berry and cassis aromas, beautifully balanced flavors of dried fruit and currants, and ripe, evolved tannins expressive of Rutherford dust. Its long, smooth finish marries rich fruit with savory, toasted oak tones.
Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Syrah, 6% Petite Sirah, 4% Zinfandel, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot
"Rich and velvety, it carries an important mouthfeel consisting of firm tannins, good acidity and a firm, minerally grounding. Fruit is the star, filling the mouth with blackberries and black currants, and a smoky coating of oak. With a dry finish, it’s drinking very well now, and will soften through 2018. "
