The 2009 Reserve Merlot (100%) was aged in French and American oak for 8 months. It offers up an aromatic array of cinnamon, clove, incense, tobacco, black currant, and blackberry. In the glass it reveals layered fruit, spicy flavors, good volume, and excellent balance. This surprisingly rich Merlot can be approached now and will provide pleasure for another 4-5 years. It is an excellent value.

Wine maker notes
Santa Ema Merlot Reserva is a deep red in color. On the nose, the unmistakable notes of chocolate and vanilla appear along with red fruits and roasted coffee. The palate is silky and has tremendous structure, with nicely rounded ripe tannins. The perfect companion to meats, stews, pastas, and cheeses.

Food pairing
Drink with red meats, white meats, pastas, game birds, and cheeses.
