Emiliana's organic Novas range is great value, but this Cab-Merlot blend is also really good regardless. It's somewhat rough now, in its youth, but the elements are all there, with a sweet, buttery nose and notes of cassis, blackberry, raspberry, plum, graphite, and mint, enough savoury goodness to offset the sweet fruit. It lacks depth on the palate, it's a touch bitter on the finish, and it's just too coarse overall (if quite a bit smoother and softer by the second day), but this is a very fine effort nonetheless, yet more proof that high-quality wine can carry a very reasonable price tag.
