2013, Emmolo, Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley 2013 Mer Soleil Chardonnay Reserve

It is always fun to discover new wines for your pleasure. Arrow and Branch is on its wy to become a cult winery!

Our Impressions:
We’ve featured the Wagner family before, and for good reason: each member of the family seems capable of making a great wine, whether it’s Chuck at Caymus or his children Jenny and Charlie at Emmolo and Mer Soleil respectively, the apples fell very close to the tree!

As summer starts to heat up, now is the perfect time to try these amazing (and refreshing) whites!

Emmolo's origin in the Wagner family dates back in 1923, when Jenny’s great-grandfather Salvatore Emmolo immigrated to Rutherford from Italy. He built a winery and grapevine rootstock nursery, the latter becoming the leading supplier to Napa Valley vintners. In 1994, Jenny’s mother launched the Emmolo line of wines. Jenny took over two years ago and is already impressing with her outstanding Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot.

Mer Soleil began in 1988 when Chuck Wagner planted Chardonnay vines in the Santa Lucia Highlands in Sonoma. What began as a few vines expanded to a few acres; the first vintage of Mer Soleil was released in 1995 (the name is French for “sea sun”). The grapes they used were chosen for their low yield and high quality. Mer Soleil currently produces two Chardonnays: The Reserve, which is aged in French oak for 12-15 months prior to bottling, and the Silver, so called because it is aged in steel rather than oak.

“We drink bad wine so you don’t have to” is our unofficial slogan here at Duke of Bourbon, but it pleases us to no end to say that these wines are absolutely great, with absolutely great price points. Discover the Wagner family of wines today!

Mer Soleil Winery Notes:

"Golden-hued in color, the wine opens with opulent aromas of peach, apple, Meyer lemon and baking spices. The palate is an inviting medley of peach and D’Anjou pear; layered with tropical notes of pineapple and banana. The vibrant acidity is well balanced by warm butterscotch and subtle coconut notes that seamlessly meld together to create a luscious, mouth-filling richness. It is medium to full-bodied with a refreshing burst of minerality and well-integrated oak characteristics that offer a round, lengthy finish.”

Emmolo Winery Notes:
"Light and soft-bodied, the 2013 vintage offers a firm acidity balanced with a stark, steely flavor. Aromas are fresh and clean, evoking the scent of early morning after a first rain, with a hint of honeysuckle and underlying notes of tangerine and wet stone. The wine enters the palate with a crisp yet soft quality, flowing into flavors of flower blossom and ending with a mouthwatering finish of fresh-squeezed grapefruit. A long-lasting, zesty minerality leaves the sensation of both subtlety and brightness.”
