2007 Melka Métisse
Jumping Goat Vineyard
Napa Valley

This predominately Cabernet based wine possesses a classic nose of spring flowers, black currants, smoke and forest floor.  It is a full-bodied wine with incredibly plush texture, impeccable purity and balance with silky tannins and a long finish.  The 2007 vintage is considered by many as a perfect growing season with no heat waves during ripeness of the grapes.  The result was intense and extremely complex flavors and amazing structure.  Of the eleven vintages produced of this wine, this is clearly one of the best.
