2011 Melka Métisse
Jumping Goat Vineyard
Napa Valley

The 2011 vintage was almost a dream come true for a French winemaker; light on its feet with aromatics of clove, cardamon and Bing cherry, this wine displays incredible vibrancy with lush, lively fruit. The structure and texture show a purity that is closest in style to a true Bordeaux. The seductive aromas and incredible balance excite the sense and make this wine ideal for food paring. This varietal blend composition is reminiscent of our very first vintage of Metisse.

"Surprisingly strong for this vintage, it exhibits notes of blue and red fruits, charcoal, white chocolate, coffee bean and wood... thisvery fine 2011 can be consumed over the next decade"
