Melka Metisse Jumping Goat Vineyard 2007
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot. Possesses a classic nose of spring flowers, blackcurrants, smoke, and forest floor. It is a full-bodied wine with incredibly plush texture, impeccable purity, and balance with silky tannins and a long finish.
Born and trained in Bordeaux, France Philippe brought his passion for winemaking to California. There, he fell in love with Cherie, his partner in life and in the art of winemaking. Their belief that a grape must tell the story of its native soil is what sets the standard for the wines they create. Philippe has a passion for balance and perfection. You can see it in his eyes. Metisse is a French word meaning "a blend of cultures." They chose this name because it embodies both the spirit of their original concept (a blend of Bordeaux varietals - cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and petit verdot) and their spirit as winemakers (a blend of French and American).
