Wine Review: This Merlot from Emmolo is terrific follow up to the 2014. The 2015 is dark red colored and slightly opaque. It opens with a ripe black cherry bouquet with notes of black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of oak. I also detected hints of minerality and black currant. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins sail away nicely. This is a very good wine and would be a perfect match with a filet mignon at your favorite steak house. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Grapes for this wine were sourced from Napa Valley's Oak Knoll district, which includes two family vineyards. The area’s cooler weather, along with crop thinning and gravelly light soil, creates ideal conditions for producing a rich, distinctive Merlot. This wine is lush and supple on the palate, with expansive, dark berry flavors, a fresh earthiness and smooth, leathery tannins.
