"A first-class Cabernet, this shows a heady concentration of blackberries and cassis, yet there also are fascinating notes of olives and savory dried herbs that are Bordeaux-esque. The tannins are strong and pure, suggesting ageability. Give it 6–8 years in the cellar. -SH"
Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully
balanced, with a supple, elegant texture and lush ripe fruit flavors of cherry and blackberry, and subtle oak nuances of
chocolate, toffee, and toasted vanilla.
The grapes for our Emblem Oso Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested from our family's Oso Vineyard. Planted on slopes rising up from Schwartz Creek, it is nestled between Sugarloaf and Howell Mountains in Napa Valley, where the historic Oat Hill Mine Road begins its ascent over the mountain toward Calistoga. There, the vines grow on beautiful, stone-lined terraces, out of a rocky, porous soil at an elevation of 1,250 feet. The high drainage stresses the vines, leading to high flavor concentration. The fruit remains fresh and vibrant throughout the growing season due to mild temperatures — warmer evenings and cooler days than on the valley floor — and afternoon breezes that blow straight down the vineyard rows. From the soil and elevation this mountain fruit extracts intense varietal characteristics, a firm structure, and excellent aging potential." -Winery
