2004 Melka Métisse
Jumping Goat Vineyard
Napa Valley

The aromatics of this wine are seductive with hints of violet, vanilla and dried herbs. A Bordeaux styled wine exhibiting pure elegance, fabulous dark fruit, an attractive freshness as well as intensity. It is luscious, rich, and opulent. Gorgeously integrated acidity, alcohol and sweet tannin make for an extremely complex wine. Decanting highly recommended.

Recommended to hold

"It reveals medium to full body as well as a lovely, pure perfume of crème de cassis,
white chocolate, black cherries, spice and subtle background oak. . ."
