Melka 2013 CJ Cabernet Napa Valley - 375ml


Melka 2013 CJ Cabernet Napa Valley - 375ml

This vintage produced some amazing wines in the Napa Valley and our CJ is no exception.  With an extremely seductive nose boasting black fruit and black currants in its aroma profile, this lush and layered wine demonstrates well-ripened fruit along with well integrated acidity.  Chocolate and gravelly with tons of finesse, the powerful tannins are present but round and voluptuous.  This CJ has all the components of a great wine: approachability, depth and the ability to age. 

The wine is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc 7% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot

Robert Parker 94 Points: "The 2013 CJ is a 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot blend aged 18 months in about one-fifth new French oak. This is one of my favorite wines in his portfolio, and the good news is that there are 1,800 cases. It has an absolutely spectacular nose of white chocolate, grilled meats, blackcurrants and licorice. The wine is full-bodied, has an opaque purple color, beautiful texture, density and overall richness and length. This wine is showing secondary nuances already, and should continue to evolve gracefully for 15 or more years."
