Winemaker's Notes:

This 3.5 acre vineyard located in St. Helena is planted to all three varietals found in this delicious Bordeaux blend. This vintage produced a more polished and refined wine than the 2008, with layers of effortless, racy fruit that flow from this seamless, compelling wine.

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot

My Notes:

About Melka Wines:

Philippe and Cherie Melka have been sharing their passion for creating exceptional wines since 1996 with the releases of the CJ and Metisse wines. Their vision was to grow these two wines into something consumers would anticipate when released. Production was very small, quality high and visibility in the marketplace limited. Those were their intentions. Today, the Melkas are proud to continue to produce CJ Cabernet along with three single vineyard Metisse wines from Napa Valley, Knights Valley and St. Emilion. Philippe and Cherie continue to pursue their vision of producing wines that demonstrate the uniqueness of site and varietal as the project arcs into its second decade above the radar and in full fruition.
