2006 Melka CJ
CJ Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

Lean and earthy with dark berry flavors combine with vanilla and cinder box to excite the senses. Firm yet super juicy, this succulent Napa Valley classic is a wine that never disappoints. The velvety tannins integrate seemlessly with the acidity making this wine approachable even in its youth.
