Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

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!
