The 2008 Metisse Cabernet Sauvignon Jumping Goat Vineyard is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon 11% Petit Verdot and 7% Merlot aged in French oak of which 85% was new. The wine which is made at the Vineyard 29 high-tech facility north of St. Helena possesses a dense saturated ruby/purple color as well as a sweet kiss of black currants cedar toast gravel and flowers. Ripe and medium to full-bodied with velvety tannins (a Melka trademark) this multidimensional layered rich supple wine can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years.

Soft plush and seamless with considerable early appeal to the fruit-driven flavors of raspberry plum and mocha. Just enough energy to maintain its shape. This liquid confection reminded me a bit of a Pomerol. A big boy finishing with sweet but serious tannins that reverberate in the mouth and saturate the palate on the very long aftertaste.
