2003 Melka Métisse
Jumping Goat Vineyard
Napa Valley

This wine is a densely structured full bodied cabernet with a deep red color. The aromatics are a mix of blackberry, tar and chocolate with floral overtones. The wine is rich with dark fruit flavors, possessing layers of complexity which give it such dimension and character. The finish is silky and seductive. This wine is at its best when decanted well before serving.

Recommended to hold

"It offers beautiful scents of white chocolate, charcoal embers, flowers,
blackberries and currants. It is full bodied with silky tannin and a superb texture . . ."
