The Full Review
It is big, creamy and alcohol dominate with some notes of vanilla and banana. There is a hint of tropical fruit, like guava, and some coconut somewhere in there, but it’s a whisper. With the alcohol as high as it is you might struggle to get more from this wine. These days many winemakers are working to allow this grape to truly express itself with restraint in the vineyard and the winery; here Emblem seems to be going for the days of old (the 80’s) when the oak was everything and the ethanol was high. Because of the wine's intensity it would be hard to pair it with food but it will definitely work as a background bottle for most occasions where wine isn't the focus.
