    Winemaker's Notes:

    Santa Ema was established by Pedro Pavone, the son of Italian winemakers from Piedmont in Italy. Having arrived in the Maipo valley of Chile in 1917, Pedro was an engineer by trade and spent his early years grape growing for other wineries, having planted his first vineyards in 1931 and harvesting his first cabernet, Merlot and sauvignon Blanc grapes four years later. He then established the winery with his son Felix in 1955. Santa Ema produces Chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc in addition to a reserve range, Barrel Select line, and a Bordeaux-style red blend called "Catalina" which consistently earns praise for each vintage. Santa Ema was named one of the 20 "World's Finest value Brands" by Wine Spectator in 2005.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Merlot Reserve is a glass-coating opaque purple. The nose offers up coffee, mocha, and cherry leading to a wine with no hard edges and plenty of character. If all Merlots offered this much pleasure, Pinot Noir would never have become so popular.

    Very enjoyable wine. I enjoyed it for sipping and with dinner. I thought RP's review was right on with this one. Bought more, but getting hard to find...
