(0) No Reviews yet


Jenny Wagner, of the Wagner family who owns Caymus, and her mother Cheryl restarted Cheryl's family's winery in the original building in Oak Knoll, and named it Emmolo, which is now owned and run by Jenny. Their Merlot is sourced from family holdings in Oak Knoll that have been in their family for generations.Oak Knoll is a little cooler than it is upvalley, so this is the ideal spot for Merlot to get maximum hang time. This is a plush, aromatic, satisfying Merlot with notes of black cherries, ripe plums, black currant, dark chocolate, and mint. If you are looking for a delicate, frilly Merlot, this is most definitely not your perp.

Details

Yet another Wagner joins the fold! With her brothers Joe and Charlie running Belle Glos and Mer Soleil, respectively, and her father Chuck helming the family flagship at Caymus Vineyards, Jenny Wagner is taking a different tack in continuing her mother's side of the family legacy. Dating back to the 1920's when her maternal great-grandfather established a vineyard nursery in Rutherford, Jenny's roots on both sides of her family tree stretch deep into the very early days of Napa Valley. She has partnered with her grandparents, who still own and farm Napa vineyards, and her mother, who established the brand by making wine in the same building that housed the family's original winery in 1934. Emmolo (em-oh-low) represents another step forward for one of Napa Valley's first families of winemaking excellence.
