2012 Melka CJ
CJ Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

This vintage was a very striking and plentiful one and this CJ has the amazing depth that resonates with the 2012 harvest.  With intense aromatics of dark red cherry, cedar, smoke and leather along with incredible richness, this wine demonstrates how a very complex wine can also be truly balanced and lush.  This is certainly one of the most structured CJ's that we have ever produced to date.

"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."
