The Emporio is a blend of Merlot (53%), Cabernet Franc (32%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%). It is a wine of lovely texture and complexity, a wine to sit and contemplate. The fact that it has the aroma of Green and Black’s Maya Gold Chocolate, pepper and blackberry makes it even more interesting. That is spicy nutmeg, toast, some orange peel and chocolate for those who are as yet uninitiated in this fine chocolate. The palate is just as complex and pronounced with flavours of spicy pepper, chocolate, aniseed, blackcurrant with a hint of mint on the finish.
