Melka Métisse Jumping Goat Vineyard 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2013 vintage will most likely go down in history as one of the best for the Napa Valley and this site, despite the grandness of the vintage, has stayed true to its style that is inherent from this vineyard. So much like the Graves area in Bordeaux, the wine is perfumy, layered and rich without being overripe. Aromatics of dark fruit, plum and spice with notes of chocolate and violet are made prevalent in a wine that exhibits denseness, opulence and softness. There is almost a merlot-ish quality to the wine even though it represents only 5% of the blend. A stunning wine with too many nuances to describe, a must have for any collector.
