8.5 out of 10 which for a Merlot is a very high rating from us.

This was my easiest Blind Wine by far!! The only thing I missed was the Vintage - I said 3-5 years old and guessed a 2010 vintage...it is 2012!!  There is no mistaking a Napa Valley Merlot from the Wagner Family.  Classic, elegant and fruit driven, the Emmolo is a pure New World expression of the Merlot Grape... lots of Black Cherry, Plum, ripe Raspberry, graphite and vanilla. Firm acidity and medium alcohol and medium round, fine tannins give this wine body and length, and a good potential to age for another 5-10 years! Exceptional and delicious, will pair with anything you want to try it with!!
