2004 Melka CJ
CJ Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

This wine is reminiscent of the 2003: it is a dense "big cab" style but with enough harmony and integration to make it approachable. The aromas of smoke, blackberry, liquor and oak spices increase in intensity with aeration. The mouth feel is broad with a rich texture and luscious sweetness.

"The 2004 CJ is a wine that exhibits both elegance and structure. To us the CJ has
become a wine that is tried and true - like the love of our children."
