Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Emilio Moro was produced with grapes from vineyards ranging between 12 and 25 years old, fermented with yeasts selected from their own vineyards in stainless steel vats, and aged in 50/50 French and American oak barrels (one-third new) for one year. There are some faint toasty notes denoting a very young wine, but in general it's very fruit-driven and quite harmonious. Time in bottle has polished it and given it a sleek texture and nicely integrated oak. Very approachable and ready. 600,000 bottles produced.
