Welcome to EMH’s website and the current release of “Black Cat” 2017!

April, 2019

The 2017 EMH Black Cat Cabernet is my 18th vintage, continuing the line of wine produced from single-vineyard fruit grown on EMH's property.

This year I have designated the wine produced as "Classic" Black Cat, as opposed to what has become known as the "regular" Black Cat, or the "Special Selection," or the two single-barrel wines "Sparkles" and "Lady Sapphire." An unusually small yield resulted in
fewer than 2 tons, which gave me just four barrels to work with. The whole was better than any of the parts, but the composite wine is delicious. I have positioned it as more elevated than the typical "regular" bottling, but the vintage did not produce enough barrels to enable me to pull a "Special Selection." Enter a new designation: "Classic" Black Cat. The bottle will be screen-printed in gold as the typical "Selection," but it is a wine which contains everything I produced for this vintage.
