2005 Melka CJ
CJ Cabernet Sauvignon

The aromatics of this wine are extremely rich with blackberry, fig and vanilla. It expresses intense youthfulness which shows through to the finish. It is concentrated without being heavy. Superbly integrated acidity and sweet tannins make for an enjoyable wine. Decanting is strongly recommended.

it's true character which is liveliness and playfulness along with depth and seriousness"
