" Slightly reticent aromatically, with coaxing it reveals notes of cedar, tobacco, violets, spice box, and assorted black fruits. More structured than the Reserve Merlot, it might evolve for 1-2 years although there is no need to defer gratification. Santa Ema has been a reliable source of value priced wines for a number of year . Dark and rather toasty, with firm coffee and black licorice notes around the core of roasted fig and black currant fruit. A firm, toasty edge holds sway on the finish. For fans of the style". - JM
