K&L Notes

The Emerson Brown Napa Valley Cabernets are always a terrific value and this one is no exception. This is a collaboration by two members of the Vineyard 29 winemaking team. Keith Emerson, Director of Winemaking at Vineyard 29, has over 18 vintages to his credit while Brian Brown earned his viticultural and enology degree from UC Davis back in 2001. Their philosophy and approach to winemaking accentuates the fruit over winemaking which results in wines of great balance and finesse.

    This collaborative side project from winemakers Keith Emerson and Brian Brown needs to be on everyone's watch list. Between the two of them, their resumes read like a who's who of California movers and shakers. These long established relationships have given them access to some of the best growers in Napa, including a few culty start-ups we can only allude to here. The Napa Cabernet itself is a beautifully balanced red showing hallmark characteristics of black cherry, kirsch and currant aromas. Notes of tobacco and spice round out the character. It is a pure and elegant expression that has longevity written all over it. Most wines with this Napa pedigree would be twice the price of this stellar offering here. Not to be missed.

    Looking for an outstanding Napa Cab thats drinking incredibly now? Look no further. The Emerson Brown delivers! 100% Cabernet and very textured tannins, the wine finishes smooth with flavors of black currant, vanilla, and everything else you want in a Napa Cab, yet at such a very fair price.

    This wine captures a style of Cabernet Sauvignon I’m particularly partial to. There’s an elegance and freshness here not typically found in big reds from Napa Valley. The upfront aromatics allude to a bowl full of fresh red, blue, and black berries. There’s a cool element to the nose that hints at sage, spice, and a touch of mint. It’s not common to refer to Cabernet as refreshing but this wine has it. The wine soft and accessible with just enough tannin to give the wine some palate pleasing grip resulting in a long creamy finish. This is 100% pure Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 40% new French Oak. It’s classically styled and currently available only at K&L at a very customer friendly price.
