2011 Melka Mekerra
Mekerra
Knights Valley
Above the fog at 2,500 feet during the 2011 growing season was one of the keys to the success of this wine, helping the grapes achieve full maturity with concentrated flavors. Aromatics of blackberry and tobacco mixed with floral notes and spice explode in this dense and lush wine. Beautifully balanced with a long and lingering finish, this wine will age 15-25 years easily. Decanting this wine is recommended to fully express the personality and the strength of our vineyard.

2011 Melka Mekerra
Sauvignon Blanc
Knights Valley
This stunning Sauvignon blanc is the first white wine to be produced from the 2300 foot elevation vineyard in Knights Valley. Capturing the uniqueness of the La Mekerra soils, it emulates a striking nose so aromatically overwhelming that combines notes of minerality and varietal character. Peach, lychee, mango and gardenia are woven into a wine with perfect structure and balance. This utterly impeccable white ends with brilliant acidity and a long, lingering finish.
