On the nose, black raspberry, bushy summer blackberries, graphite and Luden’s cherry drops immediately showcase what we love about cabernet sauvignon. Great acidity builds the backbone of this wine and encases palate notes of cocoa powder and graphite. Expect an endlessly silky finish interlaced with delicate violet notes. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Brian Brown earned his viticulture and enology degree from the University of California, Davis in 2001. After graduating, Brian worked harvests with Iron Horse Vineyards in Sonoma, Salitage in Pemberton Australia, and Napa Wine Company in Oakville. Then Brian moved to Trefethen Vineyards as their enologist, where he learned to make balanced vineyard driven wines that express fruit qualities over winemaker manipulations.
Emerson Brown began while working hand in glove at Vineyard 29 during the harvest season of 2005, a vintage marked by an excessively large crop, so big that many wineries turned fruit away at the crush pad. A little horse-trading with growers and the Emerson Brown partnership was born.
