This radiant Sauvignon Blanc from winemaker Jenny Wagner, daughter of Chuck Wagner, is a classic rendition, full of elegance and style. Pink grapefruit and lime shine through on the nose with subtler notes of green guava and fennel. This could be the best vintage yet by one of the top Sauvignon Blanc producers in Napa Valley. Sleek, bright, and persistent, this is one you’ll want by the case.
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.
