Welcome to EMH’s website and the current release of “Black Cat” 2018! January, 2021
The 2018 EMH Black Cat Cabernet is my 19th vintage, continuing the line of wine produced from single-vineyard fruit grown on EMH's property.
This vintage I have designated a wine produced as "Classic" Black Cat, as opposed to what had become known as the "regular" Black Cat. There is also a "Special Selection," which is a special pull of only some parts of some barrels.
Some tasting notes from our small staff of tasting associates:2018 “Classic” Black Cat Cabernet Sauvignon
Aromatics of dark fruits, spiced cherry and graphite, all following through to the palate. Toasty oak and a bit of spice, all supported by bold tannins and bright acidity. A complex wine that is bold, ending with a long finish.

)2018 EMH Black Cat Special Selection
Aromatics of sweet cherry and blackberry, backed by floral notes and light, warm, baking spice. Aromatics follow nicely to the palate, resulting in an elegant and lush mouthfeel, showcasing velvety tannins and balanced by excellent acidity. The finish is long and lingering.

Our tiny operation produces wine exclusively from Cabernet grapes grown on our less-than-an-acre vineyard, with no additions of purchased fruit. What is in the bottle directly represents what is grown in our vineyard. Most people who taste more than one vintage of EMH’s Black Cat
are impressed with the consistency of quality and character emerging from each vintage we produce. We hope you enjoy the 2018s, and that you discover for yourself what makes Black Cat
So welcome, or welcome back! We look forward to hearing from you.
Enjoy and cheers!
