Description

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. Under the Emblem label, siblings Rob Mondavi Jr. and Dina Mondavi have collaborated to produce two standout Cabernets. The first wine is a distinct Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the family’s Oso Vineyard (nestled between Ink Grade and Howell Mountain)—it’s age-worthy and structured, with palpable tannins in its finish. The second wine is a more approachable, softer Cabernet blend crafted from several worthy locations across Napa Valley.

Vinification

The grapes are exclusively hand-harvested. During fermentation the colors, flavors, textures and aromas are naturally extracted from the skins.At approximately 14 days, the fermentation is completed, and we drain the tanks, remove the skins and then gently press to capture the remaining juice.It is then transferred into small French oak barrels (66% new French oak) and aged for 18 months. Blending Notes: Thoughtfully sculpted, the 2016 Emblem Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of three complimentary varietals -Cabernet Sauvignon provides the depth and structure , Petite Sirah imparts exotic spices and violet floral attributes, while the Petit Verdot ties the blend together with additional structure and a vibrant aroma of primrose and subtle sandalwood.
