Oak Knoll, Napa Valley

Kelly Family Vineyards

Oak Knoll District Merlot 2012

Bright cherry red with light purple accents. Mostly ripe red fruits on the somewhat simple nose joined by spice and herbs. Simple, or rather straightforward is a perfect way to describe this Merlot. A no frills, well made wine with none of the bells and whistles. Medium bodied with mild acid and round tannins. Wonderfully lush tannins. Fresh cherries and blackberries on the palate being supported by new leather, spice box, and warm chocolate. Pick this one up, it’s fun stuff. — 9 days ago

Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Not a bad little wine. Pretty good QPR. The wine pours very dark into the glass. Nose of herbs, stiff oak and red licorice. Enters with youthful sweetness. Definitely quite a bit fruit forward. More tobacco leaf with oregano and rosemary on the mid-palate. Finishes with black cherry, red licorice, tobacco, and stiff oak barrel tannin. I'd be surprised if this one lasted 10 years in the future, but I can definitely see the benefits of holding for 3 to 5 years here. — a month ago

This vintage has some depth and complexity. The tannins are settling and if you enjoy chewing on wine I’d recommend this for sure. — 10 days ago

Emmolo Winery

Napa Valley Merlot 2017

In 1923 Salvatore Emmolo immigrated from Sicily to Napa buying property and starting grapevine rootstock. Salvatore’s granddaughter Cheryl started the Emmolo label in 1994, now run by Jenny Wagner, Cheryl’s daughter. Grapes sourced from Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll district, deep Ruby with purple edges and aromas of black fruits, some oak and sweet spice. The palate yielded berry jam and fruit tastes with a touch of roasted espresso beans and a perfect amount of pungent, almost smoky spice, to a clean light oak and nutty finish on smooth, slightly gripping tannins. A real Gem! Tasting Sample! — 8 days ago
