Wine Review: This deep purple colored Merlot from Emmolo is very good. It opens with a mild black cherry-cola, and oak bouquet with hints of anise. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with plus acidity. The flavor profile is a black cherry and black plum blend with notes of clove and anise. I also detected hints of oak, cinnamon, black pepper, and with a touch of raspberry as well. The finish is rather dry and dusty for a Merlot. I would pair this big boy Merlot with a well-marbled ribeye steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The enveloping color of black cherries, this wine unfolds with an array of scents that are both savory and lush—sweet spice and rosemary are layered onto ripe cherries and dried apricot. Earthy notes of tree bark on a dewy morning mingle with a homey hint of sweet dough and cinnamon. Entry on the palate is extravagantly soft, leading into a balance of rich flavors and lively fruit. Juicy cherry carries over from the nose, along with bright pomegranate and the warmth of baking cocoa. The smooth, long finish features the alluring character of spiced mocha.
