Emerson Brown Wines
2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley
Today’s Emerson Brown Wines 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a plush, elegant and very powerful gem of a wine. We fell in love at first inhalation. When we sipped the wine, it was all over for us… We snapped up every case that we could get our hands on.
The Emerson Brown winery was born of a collaboration between long established winemakers Keith Emerson and Brian Brown, each of whom have held postings at some of the world’s most prestigious wineries. Keith and Brian spent their early careers making wines for Robert Craig, Trefethen, Vineyard 29, Gundlach Bundschu and Round Pond Estate.
Now they make wine for you, under their exciting Emerson Brown label. Their focus is on Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Today’s very highly recommended wine is a classic, elegant, fruit-driven Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with all the charm and swagger we’ve come to expect from the Cabernet kingmaking Napa Valley.
On the nose, today’s wine is perfumed and fragrant, with Rainier cherry, black currant, red currant, pomegranate, berry bush, cedar, toasted oak, dark chocolate, sweet baking spices and dried violets. On the palate, it is darkly layered, with a balance of dark, juicy fruit combined with earth and spice. The wine leads with Blackberry, black cherry and cassis, followed by dark spice, slate, dried violets, toasty oak and dark chocolate.
This wine is offered to you with our fullest recommendation.
Deep crimson, with a dense heart and beautiful red edges.
Rainier cherry, black currant, red currant, pomegranate, berry bush, cedar, toasted oak, dark chocolate, sweet baking spices and dried violets.
Blackberry, black cherry and cassis, followed by dark spice, slate, dried violets, toasty oak and dark chocolate.
Very long and very plush, with a crushed velvet feel that spreads across the palate, introducing a lip drying pucker that invites you to take the next delicious sip.
We recommend going bold with this blockbuster of a wine. Moroccan spiced lamb or beef kabobs would be fantastic.
