Santa Ema seems to be striving for the ripest possible style they can get, and along the way they have found that while also losing some elegance. It starts with sweet, jammy aromas that are not far from melted red licorice. The palate is saturated with berry flavors, while the feel is thick but slightly flat. Could use more edge and compexity, but on the plus side it's lush and pleasant.
