Pleasant aromas of dark fruits on the nose. Distinct blackberry, plum and raspberry notes are dominant.
Full body Merlot with medium acidity. There are high tannins in this wine.
Great fruit notes are what hit the palate first. Blackberry and plum are the primary fruits. Some earthy, leather like notes and chocolate are some other flavors to look for.
A beautiful long oak finish.
We loved the 2015 Emmolo Merlot from Emmolo Wines as we do many of the Wagner family wines. We enjoyed this one at Capital Grille in Miami during the Wagyu and Wine Pairing event. The experience of a full bodied merlot with dark fruits and other non-fruit components make it not only interesting, but incredibly enjoyable from sip to sip.

Winemakers Tasting 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.
