An engaging style, complex and well-proportioned, with ripe currant, blackberry, cedar, sandalwood and black licorice flavors. Supple in texture and expansive on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022.
The 2008 Metisse Cabernet Sauvignon Jumping Goat Vineyard is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot and 7% Merlot aged in French oak, of which 85% was new. The wine, which is made at the Vineyard 29 high-tech facility north of St. Helena, possesses a dense saturated ruby/purple color as well as a sweet kiss of black currants, cedar, toast, gravel and flowers. Ripe and medium to full-bodied with velvety tannins (a Melka trademark), this multidimensional, layered, rich, supple wine can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years. (RP)
(85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 7% Merlot): Bright, saturated ruby-red. Black fruits, licorice and mocha on the very ripe nose. Soft, plush and seamless, with considerable early appeal to the fruit-driven flavors of raspberry, plum and mocha. Just enough energy to maintain its shape. This liquid confection reminded me a bit of a Pomerol. A big boy, finishing with sweet but serious tannins that reverberate in the mouth and saturate the palate on the very long aftertaste. (ST)
