The 2016 Emblem by Michael Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon has brought value back into the equation when it comes to top-level Napa Cabs. This wine drinks well now, and will improve for half-a-dozen years. Its aromas and flavors of focused black fruit and oak accents should pair beautifully with a well-marbled grilled ribeye.

The 2016 Emblem Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a ripe and plummy wine with chocolate and hazelnut undertones. Medium to full body, round tannins and a flavorful finish. Well balanced, with a soft and layered mouth feel make this wine a simply delicious expression of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Able to age or ready to enjoy now.
