Emerson Brown Wines
Region: Oakville, Napa, CA
Malbec is still HOT! It exploded in popularity in 2010 and is still a favorite choice by many wine lovers. We thought it was about time to feature this popular grape on Cellar Angels. We chose something special, Emerson Brown. This Malbec is worthy of our members not only because of the two highly esteemed winemakers (read below about their "day" jobs) who shower attention over this wine, but the grapes are grown in the famed Oakville AVA.
On sight, note the concentrated inky purple hue. The bouquet fills the nose with blueberries and mocha. On the palate are fruit forward notes of black cherry, blueberry, boysenberry and violets. A smooth, clean finish highlights soft tannins, a hint of herbaceousness and minerality.
