2018 Melka CJ Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA image

This wine has had its following for many decades and is still a joy to produce. The nose is very savory with tobacco notes, mountain herbs and a strong red fruit profile. The palate is very juicy and enjoyable with layers of fruit, acidity and well integrated soft tannins. Notes of dried plum, cranberry, and hint of vanilla are throughout the wine with beautiful red after notes. The finish is fresh with excellent acidity, rounded tannins and just a hint of sweetness. This is a very food driven wine and beckons to accompany a juicy red protein. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot 100% Napa Valley Production: 1500 cases Bottling: July, 2020 Aging: 22 months 40% new French oak Release: January 19, 2021 “A beautiful expression of Napa Valley Cabernet from vineyards that have continually produced great fruit for years.” ~ Philippe and Cherie Melka, proprietors
