Melka was founded in 1996 with the drive to create wines that express the soil. "CJ" an acronym for their two children Chloe & Jeremy, the inspiration for creating this wine was to have a fun project that was youthful in spirit with vibrant fruit. The first vintage of CJ was in 1996, the year Jeremy was born, and it was a mere 200 cases. Today, their annual production is a consistent 1,500 cases and it is crafted from select vineyards in the Napa Valley where they've sourced superior Cabernet grapes. CJ is meant to be enjoyed young but also has proven to age at least ten to fifteen years. Winery note: "With a nose boasting of subtle cherry and raspberry along with floral and mineral notes, this rich and creamy wine exhibits a unique combination of crushed rocks and bright red fruit. The hillside site can be credited for creating this more floral and red fruit focused wine. Well balanced with great structure, this CJ will undoubtedly be a huge crowd-pleaser. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot."
