Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Merlot from Napa Valley opens with a blueberry bouquet with hints of blackberry, violet and fennel. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is well balanced, silky, and fresh. The flavor profile is a blueberry and oak flavor with notes of mocha and black cherry. We also detected hints of red beet, spearmint, nutmeg and anise. The finish is dry and its flavors and refined tannins drift away nicely. This Merlot would pair very nicely with a grilled hanger steak in the near term. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 Emmolo Merlot from Napa Valley is a rich and well-balanced Merlot. It displays a bouquet featuring Pomace, sweet toasted oak, blackberries, and ripe plums. The flavors are dark chocolate, cocktail cherries, and it has tannins that impart a fine texture. Winemaker Jenny Wagner recommends pairing this wine with mushroom risotto, grilled sausage, pork chops, ratatouille, or with eggplant parmesan.
