The Mondavi family has always championed Cabernet Sauvignon as Napa Valley’s premier grape. Emblem represents the continuation of this visionary commitment and the passing of the torch to the next generation of the Michael Mondavi family.
Reminiscent of classic Napa Valley elegance, the Emblem Cabernet Sauvignon also embraces a modern ripe style by weaving in a small percentage of Petite Sirah to lift the aromatics and add plushness to the palate.
Black currant, cacao and a wisp of eastern spices from the French oak provide structure and a graceful finish. Hints of floral from both the Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot are exotically layered over the plum and bramble based fruit notes. This wine is ready to drink now with a tannin structure that also provides the potential of elegant cellaring and aging.
