Jenny is the newest member of the Wagner family of Caymus Vineyards, to join the family business as winemaker. For Emmolo. Jenny has been working alongside her father, Chuck Wagner, for the past few years, benefiting from hands-on learning of both grape farming and winemaking in the Napa Valley. Emmolo is named after Jenny’s maternal family, and was launched twenty years ago by her mother, Cheryl Emmolo. As winemaker, Jenny is naturally putting her own mark on the wines and elevating them to a stunning level of quality. Grapes for this wine are sourced from the Emmolo vineyard in Oak Knoll; ten miles nearer the San Francisco Bay than Rutherford it has a much cooler microclimate, ideal for Sauvignon Blanc. 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.
