?A deep fruit profile, rich and somewhat brooding. Notes of graham cracker and toast, medium tannins. Classic Black Cat.?
EMH's vineyard is situated on the valley floor near Pickett Road in Calistoga, just east of the Silverado Trail. Pocketed by the Palisades Mountains to the north and Diamond Mountain to the south, the tiny vineyard of just under an acre produces outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. The vines - clone 4 - are planted in soil which is primarily gravelly loam, which is characteristic of this area. It enjoys the climate of its more well-known neighbors including Eisele Vineyard, Frediani Vineyards, and Kenefick Ranch.
