Emmolo Merlot 2018
A vibrant velvet red, the 2018 vintage is earthy and alluring, featuring scents of ripe plums, wild berry pie and freshly wet soil. Notes of new leather, sweet cigar, sage and a whiff of mint add intriguing layers to the nose. The palate quickly builds and expands, offering flavors of mulberry, espresso, toasted wood and sweet spice. Tannins are extremely smooth, giving this wine a supple, soft texture. The lingering finish fills the mouth with the richness of lush fruit and Mexican chocolate, with rustic accents of cinnamon and clove.
