2013 Melka CJ
CJ Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

This vintage produced some amazing wines in the Napa Valley and our CJ is no exception.  With an extremely seductive nose boasting black fruit and black currants in its aroma profile this lush and layered wine demonstrates well-ripened fruit along with well integrated acidity.  Chocolate and gravelly with tons of finesse, the powerful tannins are present but round and voluptuous.  

This CJ has all the components of a great wine:  approachability, depth and the ability to age.

"While still perhaps too early to judge, we feel this is easiliy one of the top three vintages from the seventeen produced to date."
