Professional Reviews For This Wine

Vinfolio | Rating: 93

This is the third vintage of the collaboration between Keith Emerson (of Vineyard 29) and Brian Brown (of Round Pond) and the third time is definitely the charm! The wine is dark aubergine in color and is slightly opaque without being inky. The perfume is so intense, that the aromas of blue fruits, violets and dark chocolate are almost overwhelming. On the palate the wine is incredibly balanced with good tannins, structure, concentration, and minerality. There are lingering flavors of dark chocolate, dark berry fruit, and just a hint of cedar. This is a beautiful Napa Cabernet Sauvignon and a fantastic value. Enjoy it now, but it will also continue to age gracefully for the next 15 years.

This wine is beautiful! Excellent balance of fruit, tannin and acidity. Lots of black rasberry and cherry. The bouquet is lush and inviting. It's an excellent value...better than many cabernets 2 to 3 times the price. Great value!

About This Producer

Keith Emerson and Brian Brown met while they were both at Vineyard 29 in Napa Valley working with Philippe Melka. They decided to create a Cabernet together that would be of the highest quality, but also affordable. Through a mutual friend they were introduced to Josh Clark, manager of Ill Michaels Estate vineyard on the eastern bench of the Oakville appellation. The vineyard had everything they wanted: slope, climate, and age. Their premier release was 225 cases from the 2005 vintage. A Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a new addition, from the 2008 vintage.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
