At Emiliana, the organic vineyards literally teem with life. Vineyards buzz with various bugs, bees, birds and native wildlife that together provide a natural and effective defense against common vine-destroying insects. Flowers and native plants thrive throughout the organic vineyards, providing another simple and cost-effective method of pest control and helping to counteract the detrimental effects of soil degradation. The use of chemicals is shunned, in favor of natural compounds, such as copper and nitrogen. Compost is sourced from spent grape skins and stems.
The color is an intense, deep purple. Focused aromas of ripe black fruit, plum, and black cherry are apparent upfront, followed by dark chocolate notes. The palate has a velvety smooth and balanced texture, highlighting mild tannins with hints of toast and spice, and is followed by a long, satisfying finish.
