Winery notes:

"This wine is sourced from vineyards in Napa Valley, including land that has been in the family of Jenny Wagner’s maternal relatives (the Emmolos) for generations. We seek out areas with light gravelly soil and ideal growing conditions that enable longer “hang time” for the grapes to achieve full ripeness. We also utilize techniques like crop thinning to produce an elegant, distinctive Merlot. This wine has expansive, dark berry flavors, a fresh earthiness and smooth, leathery tannins.

"Coming from a long line of farmers and winemakers on both maternal and paternal sides, Jenny Wagner “inherited” her avid love of farming. Dusty hands, pushing the boundaries in viticulture, and always experimenting with winemaking techniques will continue to be her advantage.

"Jenny has created a distinguished and singular style in her Emmolo wines – Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and Sparkling. She also oversees production of hillside Zinfandel along with several experimental varieties planted under the Caymus-Suisun label in Suisun Valley, including Italian, French, and Greek varieties.

"The Emmolo label is named after Jenny’s maternal side, who arrived in Napa Valley from Sicily in 1923. For many years, the Emmolos ran a rootstock nursery, providing grapevines to many of the state’s grapegrowers."
