New release from the Caymus family! Jenny Wagner, daughter of Caymus' Chuck Wagner, has introduced this outstanding "methode traditionelle" Sparkling wine from her new label Emmolo.
Lustrous light gold, this wine opens with aromas of daffodils, the bisoctti cookie jar in my grandparetns' kitchen, and a lsigh hint of new leather. Soft bubbles fill the mouth upon entry, with an immediate freshness that yields to creaminess from extended aging in tirage. The palate features the mineral character of wt stone and mouthwatering bright citrus flavors. Subtle and alluring on the finish - like catching the scent of your favorite bakery on a breezy, sunny afternoon.
Continuing the legacy of the Wagner Family's other profound wine ventures such as Caymus, Belle Glos, and Conundrum, Jenny Wagner takes the reins of Emmolo Winery and is making a hit with these new releases! Her family has a long-standing history in Napa Valley beginning with her great-grandfather, Italian immigrant, Salvatore Emmolo, who planted grapevines and started a grapevine rootstock nursery in Rutherford in the 1920’s. His son, and Jenny's grandfather, Frank Emmolo, ran Emmolo Nursery and built a strong following amongst Napa Valley grapegrowers - becoming the leading supplier to Napa Valley vintners for five decades.
