Jenny Wagner runs Emmolo (m – oh – low), whose family has a long standing Napa history. A nice offering, very dark color, rich fruit aromas with earthy tones. On the palate blackberry and black cherry flavors with sweet spice and cacao notes, rich tangy juicy full flavors. Soft full tannins, lingering with oak and earthy ending. Perfect to drink now.

As seen in other reviews, this one has oak characteristics for sure, but it's smooth texture will be a hit for cab lovers.

Over the top, yet maintaining some balance. Deep dark fruit with sweet herbs and spice.

This is the New 2012 vintage. From Jenny Wager of Caymus .rich full bodied a touch of new oak. Loaded with black fruits, need 30 minutes breathing. Surprisingly pretty good . CB

Fantastic big merlot - one of the better domestic Merlots I've had in a long time - worth the high price tag

Just a powerhouse of a merlot, rich full and opulent.
