    Winemaker Notes

    This vineyard located right next to downtown Saint Emilion is one of the most charming places on earth and produces wines of incredible depth. The 2010 impresses with its captivating bouquet of licorice and spice. This opulent, full bodied wine reveals superb purity and a layered mouthfeel with ripe tannins and crisp acidity. This wine can be enjoyed over the following 25+ years.

    Blend: 67% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc

    Melka, California
    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.

    St. Helena Wine

    Napa Valley, California

    View all products

    St. Helena is in the heart of the Napa Valley, nestled between Calistoga to the north and Rutherford on its southern border. On its western side, the Mayacamas Mountains guard it from the cooling effects of the Pacific Ocean; to its east stand the Vaca Mountains. In conjunction, these mountain ranges serve to lock in summer daytime heat. But in the evening, cool air from the San Pablo Bay funnels up through the valley, creating very chilly nights. It isn’t uncommon for temperatures to drop 50 degrees, a shift that promotes a balance of sugar ripeness and acidity in wine grapes.

    St. Helena contains a plethora of different soil types in a small area, which have been enhanced over centuries by rain runoff from both mountain ranges. Its vineyards cover a variety of terrain, spreading across the bucolic valley floor and its benchlands.

    These ideal topographic and climatic growing conditions easily caught the attention of early winemaking pioneers. In fact, St. Helena is the birthplace of Napa Valley’s commercial wine industry. Dr. Crane founded his cellar in 1859, David Fulton in 1860 and Charles Krug in 1861.

    Today there are no less than 400 separate vineyards planted within the 12,000 acres that make up the St. Helena appellation.

    Revered most for its red wines based on Bordeaux varieties, namely Cabernet Sauvignon, the St. Helena appellation is also a source of superior Syrah, Zinfandel and Sauvignon blanc.

    One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
