In the glass, the 2003 Emery displays a pleasing clarity and great depth of color promising a big, powerful wine. The aromas and the
flavors fulfill this promise with black currant, raspberry and plum, followed by hints of licorice, spice, rosemary and violets that
add complexity and delicacy to the sweet, juicy palate impression. The full fruit is framed by distinct yet balanced tannins, and
by crisp acidity.
Very approachable now, the 2003 Emery will cellar well for up to 10 years. Enjoy with rich, hearty fare such as
steak, barbequed ribs, lasagna, and grilled eggplant. As with all WillaKenzie 2003 Estate Pinot Noirs, it is recommended that you open and
decant this wine a couple of hours before serving.
