WA 89 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "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."
According to Wine Spectator - "A very soft, toasty, forward style, with lots of vanilla and mocha leading the way, followed by more modest plum and mint notes. Drink now."
Winemaker 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.
