From the bottle:
"Produced by Emiliana Vineyards from 100% organically grown grapes. Organic viticulture brings forth the true character of the vineyard terroir and allows the grapes to express themselves fully. As a result, distinctive flavors emerge, making a remarkably unique and complex wine.
Emiliana is passionate about wine and nature.
The 2011 Emiliana Natura Merlot begins with aromas of plum, cranberry, sweet blackberry and canned beets (really it brought back memories). The medium-bodied wine tastes smooth, soft and easy to drink. While not overly complex, it's quite nice with its mix of blackberry, plum and a little spice. It ends with tart fruit on the surprisingly long finish.
