Winemaker's Notes

EMERITUS means deserving in Latin. The only wine in the world made with the three varieties of the Valdepusa Dominion: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Merlot. Minimum aging of thirteen months in new French oak barrels. Limited series of 21,700 bottles, in addition to magnums.

Grape Variety: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Syrah, 14% Petit Verdot.
