Emmolo [Wagner/Caymus Family] Napa Valley Merlot
Wine Tasting Notes
This wine is sourced from vineyards in Napa Valley, including land that has been in the family of Jenny Wagner’s maternal relatives (the Emmolos) for generations. We seek out areas with light gravelly soil and ideal growing conditions that enable longer “hang time” for the grapes to achieve full ripeness. We also utilize techniques like crop thinning to produce an elegant, distinctive Merlot.
This wine has expansive, dark berry flavors, a fresh earthiness and smooth, leathery tannins.
