2009 Melka Métisse
Jumping Goat Vineyard
Napa Valley

This 3.5 acre vineyard located in St. Helena is planted to all three varietals found in this delicious Bordeaux blend.  This vintage produced a more polished and refined wine than the 2008, with layers of effortless, racy fruit that flow from this seamless, compelling wine.  HInts of dark cherry, cassis, ash and cigar box wrap around the seriously intense finish.  The lushness and complexity of this wine is not to be missed.
