Winemaker Notes

Métisse is a French word meaning "a blend of cultures". We chose this name because it embodies both the spirit of our original concept (a blend of Bordeaux varietals - cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot) and our spirit as the winemakers (a blend of French and American).

Our first Métisse vintage, in 1996, was the result of blending grape varietals and vineyard sources. A symbiotic relationship between Philippe and his clients led to an extraordinary blend of grapes from all over Napa Valley.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Metisse is a somewhat softer, more up-front version of the 2005, with a dark ruby/purple color, dense, concentrated, rich fruit flavors, real style and elegance, and serious power and richness with supple tannins, low acidity, yet a graceful mouthfeel with tremendous purity and length. This is a beauty. The 2005 will be at its best over the next two decades. The 2006 should drink well when released and evolve for 15 or more years. Some other good news is that Philippe Melka is now making around 200 cases of St.-Emilion from a vineyard just below Beausejour-Becot.

Wine Spectator
Offers wonderful purity of flavor, exhibiting ripe plum, cherry and blackberry fruit shaded by light toasty oak. Elegant and concentrated, this ends with a delicate mix of fruit, oak and fine-grained tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2016. 475 cases made.

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.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
