Overview of the Wine
When we hatched the Emerson Brown collaboration, we agreed The Napa Valley AVA would be our exclusive playground.
Like a favorite park, everyone has their go to ride, the one that whips your lips as the wind blasts your smile. For us, that's our Vineyard Designate Wine. Currently, we are featuring Rancho Pequeno in the Oakville sub-AVA for our aptly named Emerson Brown Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon.
Sampling every source of pleasure in the playground is another joyful expression. We refer to that broad brush approach as our Vineyard Exploration Project. Our best interpretation of this hails from different Napa Sub-AVA's depending on which area experienced ideal growing conditions in a particular vintage. Our popular Emerson Brown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon captures the power and pleasure of every corner in our home playground.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Upon swirling, the 2020 Napa Cabernet quickly unfolds to reveal fragrant violets, graphite, cocoa powder, and chocolate covered blueberries. Carrying onto the palate, the signature blue and black fruits emerge, supported by firm tannins and balanced acid. Integrated French oak provides layers of Tahitian vanilla notes and a rich rounded mouthfeel. Full bodied, but still lifted and light on its toes, this wine finishes long while hitting all the right notes.
