2010 Melka Métisse
Jumping Goat Vineyard
Napa Valley

This 3.5 acre vineyard located in St. Helena produces an amazing Bordeaux blend every year.  2010 was a cool year with heat spikes after veraison which contribute to its complexity.  The aromas of fresh cut flowers along with cloves, tobacco and dry earth jump from the glass.  The flavors are beautifully layered in this silky, unctuous wine that is extremely polished and refined.  If ever there was a crowd pleasing vintage, this is it.
