Emmolo Winery Napa Valley Merlot 2013, California 

My Rating 92 Points.   

Price $55. 

 

Inky in color with same color rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, figs, smoke, licorice, cherries pie, vegetables, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Long finish with firm tannins and peppercorn.

What an awesome Merlot from Napa Valley this is. Balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food.
Complex and interesting with a nice mouthfeel. A great sipping wine. Powerful, rich and delicious. Another hit from the Wagner family.

Drinking nicely now and needs 1 hour to open up properly.

15.1% alcohol by volume.
