Emmolo Merlot 2019
Save $30.00 (38%)
A bouquet of cocktail cherries and sweet spice, with notes of savory bread, newly oiled leather and pronounced French oak. On the palate, smooth upon entry, with a richness that builds. Flavors of cherry, spice and savory bread carry over from the nose, with lush plums and a hint of jerky. Dusty, powdery tannins lend softness. French oak character comes through on the nose, palate and lingering finish. Pair with mushroom risotto, grilled sausage, pork chops, ratatouille and eggplant parmesan.
Lithe and sleek up front, revealing black cherry, spiced cinnamon and tomato leaf flavors, underlined by an increasingly tense structure as this approaches broad-shouldered tannins. Drink now through 2029. 22,900 cases made.
