For four generations, the Mondavi family has tended vineyards in California's Napa Valley. Michael Mondavi's grandparents, Cesare and Rosa, immigrated to America from Sassoferrato, Italy, settling initially in Minnesota before moving to Lodi, California in 1921 where they established a grape shipping and wine supply business. By the late 1930s, Cesare perceived that the future lay in quality wine from Napa Valley and eventually evolved his family’s business from bulk wine to bottled wine. In 1943, the family purchased the historic Charles Krug winery in Napa Valley.  

In 1966, Michael and his father Robert partnered to create Robert Mondavi Winery, then threw themselves behind promoting not just the winery’s releases, but all Napa Valley wine. The combination of quality and the Mondavi family’s energetic spirit helped to establish Napa Valley as the premier winegrowing region it is today. Michael recalls, “We knew in 1966 that we had the soil, the climate, the grape varieties, the knowledge and the passion to make wines that belonged in the company of the great wines of the world. But it hadn’t been done consistently in Napa. And that was our objective: produce the wines with consistent high quality, then market and sell them to the finer restaurants and wine shops throughout the United States.”

Michael, his wife Isabel, and their children Dina and Rob Mondavi, Jr, founded Michael Mondavi Family wines in 1999. The family prides itself on crafting a heritage-driven portfolio of small-production, artisanal wines. They are balanced wines with integrity and a sense of place, conveying the passion and tradition enduring through the generations. Emblem Cabernet Sauvignon is made of 100% handpicked fruit, 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 7% Petite Sirah, aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

The Emblem Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exudes aromas of freshly muddled boysenberries, warm vanilla bean, and toasty cardamom. The rich, polished notes of this wine offer voluminous and supple aromas accompanied by rich tannins and dark fruits of plum and ripe dark brambly berries. Well balanced, with a soft and layered mouthfeel make this wine a simply delicious expression of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Serve with grilled rib eye steaks, potatoes and vegetables followed by aged cheeses.

The 2019 Emblem Cabernet Sauvignon has an inky bluish/purple color, a beautiful nose of mocha, blackcurrants and blackberries, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and bright fruit succulence and juiciness found in Cabernet Sauvignon in the $50+ price range. It possesses beautiful purity with a dense, layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally to a lush, heady finish. The wine drinks beautifully now and will continue to age through 2028 or beyond. Kudos to Michael Mondavi and his team for putting out this wine that seriously overdelivers for the price!
