The seductive deep ruby hue of this Napa Valley Merlot is complemented by rich aromas of ripe red plums, baking spice, dried flowers and dark chocolate. On the palate a captivating smoky character reminiscent of campfires emerges along with dark berry jam, creme de cassis, leather and toast flavours. Well-rounded and smooth with fine tannins and balanced alcohol, this bottle will convince even the most ardent Cabernet Sauvignon fans of the breathtaking capabilities Merlot grape when in the hands of a talented winemaker like Jenny Wagner.

Jenny's family have had a presence in the valley since the 1920s when her great-grandfather, Salvatore Emmolo, arrived from Italy and set up business selling phylloxera-resistant vines to local vintners. Over the years the Emmolos also began making their own wines and today Jenny works in the original winery that Salvatore built in 1934.

The grapes for Jenny's Merlot are sourced from the family's Oak Knoll vineyards which offer cooler temperatures and well-draining gravel soils ideal for growing quality Merlot. After vinification Jenny ages the Merlot in French oak barrels for 19 months to add further complexity and depth to the finished wine. The rich, luscious style of this Merlot makes an excellent companion to a prime filet mignon steak or even a relaxed barbecue dinner.
