Wilfred Wong
The 2017 Emmolo Merlot is generous, soft, and rounded. TASTING NOTES: This wine is smooth and supple. Enjoy its attractive aromas and flavors of ripe berries and candied fruit with wild game birds. (Tasted: November 25, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Discover Cabernet Sauvignon Wines

Cabernet Sauvignon is a red wine grape variety from the vitis vinifera grape plant species. It is the world's most commonly planted red wine grape variety, and its wines have lately been rated as the most sought-after in the world. When vinified properly, it may produce a full-bodied, complex, fruit-forward, and dry wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon grape owes most of its fame to its origins in the Bordeaux area of France. Traditionally, these wines have a strong crimson and black fruit flavor with a pronounced tannic component.

Because of its flavor profile and simplicity of production, Cabernet Sauvignon is a popular grape type among wine consumers and vintners both. The vines are very resilient, adapting to a wide range of temperatures and terroirs. They grow grapes with thick skins that are resistant to harsh conditions such as frost and hail.

Cabernet Sauvignon has large yields, which is a major plus for winemakers since it is one of the most popular red wines in the world.

About the Producer: Emmolo Wine Company

Emmolo Wine Company is a Napa Valley wine producer, specializing primarily in two wines - Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot. The brand was founded by Sherrill Emmolo in 1994, although the Rutherford property has been family owned since 1920. The property is now managed by Emmolo's daughter Jenny Wagner and is part of the Wagner family of winemakers, which includes the famous Caymus wineries Vineyards, Mer Soleil, Red Schooner and Conundrum. Emmolo produces wines from the fruits grown on the property. in the family's original winery, which was built in 1934. Sauvignon Blanc is grown on the River Ranch Estate in Rutherford and the Oak Noll Estate. The vines in these plots have a trellis structure that allows maximum sunlight to reach the grapes and, at harvest time, the fruits are harvested over several weeks, depending on maturity. In the winery, the grapes are lightly pressed and fermented in stainless steel, being later aged in stainless steel in French oak barrels. Depending on the vintage, Emmolo can produce its Merlot from fruits grown at Oak Knoll Vineyard, or from vineyard fruits at other AVAs in Napa Valley, including Carneros and Atlas Peak. This wine typically ages 19 months in 100% French oak barrels.
