2010 Melka Mekerra
Mekerra
Knights Valley

The 2010 Mekerra is a striking Cab franc/Merlot blend that entirely illustrates how wonderfully complex and impressive Cabernet franc can be.  Mocha, blackberry, grilled herbs along with cedar and new leather leap from the glass in this rich and unctuous wine.  A seamless  structure and long finish will allow this wine to age easily 15-20 years.  La Mekerra Vineyard soils are rich in both volcanic ash and clay - perfectly suited for Cabernet franc and Merlot.
