2010 Melka CJ
CJ Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

The 2010 CJ is a seductive, opulent wine exhibiting dark purple/ruby color with characteristics of licorice, spice, tobacco and plenty of black currant along with good plushness and a long, luxurious finish.  Despite a couple of storms in October, we harvested the grapes in a perfect condition of ripeness which yields a wine with great finesse, earthy tones and beautiful tannins.  This vintage will be considered as one of the finest in Napa Valley.

"We strive to create a wine that will prove to be the best value cabernet on the market.  This was our goal when we started this label back in 1996 - this current vintage does not disappoint."
