2015 Melka Metisse Jumping Goat Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage: 2015

Region: Napa Valley

Country: USA

Winemaker Notes

This wine has our most loyal following and it is no surprise as to why. Similar to the Graves region in Bordeaux, the wine is consistently perfume, with many layers that are so signature of the Jumping Goat vineyard. The nose is inviting, intriguing and intense boasting seductive dark cherry with hints of tar and oak. It is an extremely lush and balanced wine with savory layers which finishes long with superbly grainy tannins. The higher percentage of Petit verdot adds freshness and acidity to create a truly harmonious and complex wine.

About Winery

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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 97

Composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Metisse Jumping Goat Vineyard sports a very deep purple-black color and nose of crème de cassis, dark chocolate, licorice and tar with touches of sage, cigar box and pencil lead. Full-bodied and densely packed with concentrated black berries and savory layers, it has a firm structure of grainy tannins and tons of vivacity, finishing long with exotic spices coming through. 339 cases were made.
