More press to showcase this month! We’ve had quite a bit of coverage surrounding our newly released 2013 Emily’s – our eponymous wine in remembrance of Miner co-founder Emily Miner.
International Wine Report had this to say about Emily’s:
The 2013 ‘Emily’s Cuvée’ impresses right out of the gate. This Blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc is sourced from the Stagecoach, Emilio’s Terrace, Buselli, Miner and Schlein Vineyards. It displays a dark, inky color and instantly bursts open with black cherries and dark currants followed by sweet spices, dusty herbs, anise and hints of lightly toasted oak. This beautifully polished cuvée demonstrates excellent structure and balance leading up to the long, gripping finish, which is marked by a lovely touch of acidity. Overall the 2013 ‘Emily’s Cuvée’ is fantastic showing which should continue to evolve over the next decade.
A column in the Examiner included this mention about Emily’s:
Hot or not, you must pour one fat Cab this summer for those ribeye steaks searing on the grill. And this one is expressive and elegant with loads of black fruit, chocolate-coffee notes and toasty oak. Not only is this an exceptional wine, but it honors Emily Miner, the co-founder of Miner Family Winery, who lost her battle with lung cancer in 2011. $50.
Stacy Vogel worked in sales administration for a wine and beer distributor, during which she became interested in winemaking. Her Miner Family 2011 red blend “The Oracle, Napa Valley” ($46; half-bottle) is a full-bodied wine with excellent balance, fruit, complexity and refinement. Tannins call for serving with beef.
