Emblem Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Made by Michael Mondavi (Robert’s son who co-founded Robert Mondavi Winery with his dad in 1966), Emblem is made of 100% handpicked fruit and aged for 18 months in barrel. We love its rich, sultry, polished fruit and suggest serving this with grilled rib eye steaks, potatoes and vegetables followed by aged cheeses.
The Emblem Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exudes aromas of freshly muddled boysenberries, warm vanilla bean, and toasty cardamom. The welcoming 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.

Bottle ShopThe 2016 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 $50.00 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 2025 or beyond. Kudos to Michael Mondavi and his team for putting out this wine that seriously overdelivers for the price!
