Santa Ema Merlot Reserve 2013
Wine SpectatorThis lush and spicy red offers concentrated flavors of dark cherry, plum and dried raspberry that are creamy and rich-tasting. Milk chocolate and loads of Asian spice details fill in on the finish, revealing some savory touches. Drink now through 2019. 19,000 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastThis wine has an overtly oaky nose. Following suit, the palate is resiny and sticky in feel, with little fruit flavor but a whole lot of cheap-tasting wood character.
