Emerson Brown 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2021 Emerson Brown Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark purple-red brick color in the glass. The nose is a blend of sweet blackberry and black cherry notes with red currants and wild strawberry notes that ring a juicy high note in this new release. Hints of rose petals and licorice waft in and create a perfumed spiced berry and black currant aroma that is framed with a hint of toasted vanilla oak and dark chocolate. This is a plush, chewy Cabernet that fills the mouth with dark-red berries and a touch of fresh herb and earth that makes the wine wonderfully complex. The tannin is polished but well-muscled and the entire wine has a seamless, well-knit character that just glides across the palate. This vintage drinks great right from the instant you pull the cork but it's got the power to cellar for years.
