2015 Melka Metisse Jumping Goat Vineyard (1.5L)
Region: Napa Valley
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.

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.
