Emerson Brown Cabernet Sauvignon 'III Michaels Vineyard'

Emerson Brown is the result of a collaboration between Keith Emerson of the cult Cabernet label Vineyard 29, and Brian Brown of Round Pond(s Reserve Cabernet fame. With the goal of creating single vineyard wines that combine lively aromatics with Old World elegance and balance, the duo bring impressive resumes that include stints at Duckhorn, Robert Craig, Trefethen, and Iron Horse. Sourcing fruit from vineyards that would allow the grapes to mature slowly and achieve full phenolic ripeness, once in the cellar a combination of stainless steel and oak are used to enhance and compliment the fruit rather than mask it. The wine comes across as pretty versus powerful, with a palate of boysenberry, and the texture of pure cashmere. The III Michaels vineyard was recently purchased by the Araujo(s, meaning we will likely not see wines from this property at this price again. 350 cases produced

"... the best wines of 2012 ... for all their early appeal, still have a tightly coiled spring; high-pitched aromas of minerals, spices and flowers; more red than black fruits; and gripping finishes... Great natural concentration and small, thick-skinned grapes due to a poor flowering enabled Burgundy's better producers to make monumental wines in 2012." " Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
"It is an inescapable truth that 2010 has produced another year of compelling Bordeaux that will go down as a prodigious vintage alongside 2009! " Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

"...2010 is the finest vintage for red Burgundy I have tasted since I made my first tour of the region in 1988. The vintage has virtually all the elements of Burgundy greatness: vibrant aromas and flavors accurate to terroir; bright acidity; inner-mouth tension; intensity without weight; palpable minerality; ripe, fine-grained tannins; and the concentration, balance and backbone to support a long evolution in bottle. " Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
