The 2001 Metisse is the finest example of this offering Philippe Melka has yet fashioned. Sadly, there are only 350 cases of this beautifully made, deep, opaque purple-colored wine. Its offers a gorgeous perfume of black currants, acacia flowers, espresso roast, and a hint of chocolate. Powerful yet well-delineated, rich, and surprisingly light on its feet, it is the first 100% Cabernet Sauvignon effort Melka has produced. There are 250 cases.
Good ruby-red. Currant, dark chocolate, licorice and mint on the nose. Fat and round but fresh and high-pitched, with pure, lively flavors of currant, menthol, licorice and fresh herbs. This offers excellent chewy depth. Finishes with strong but well-distributed tannins. An excellent vintage for this bottling, the first to be made completely from cabernet sauvignon.
Intense and firmly tannic, drying throughout yet very complex in its range of tobacco, cedar, dried dark berry, roasted herb and mineral. Best to decant, and for all its tannic muscle, it is expansive on the finish and the tannins give it traction. (Web Only - 2011)
