Inky ruby color. A plush fragrance of black currant, blueberries, and bitter blackberries mingles with caramel sweetness and a whiff of cypress. The wine’s oak provides frame for its splashy fruits, and the powdery tannins are a somewhat-relief. A big, smiling, ripe, and easygoing wine. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah, 4% Zinfandel, 4% Petit Verdot. Fifteen months in French oak, two-thirds new. 14.4% abv | $35 (sample)

Our wedding wine from 5/30/15. Powerful and bold! Big tannin structure. Very enjoyable now but still uptight. Needs a little time to loosen up. Good thing we have 10 or so more bottles! See ya next year #Emblem. #1stAnniversary
