Fun blend of 53% ME & 47% CF. — 12 days ago
Wow. Such a treat. As good as Hollys Hill Rhone expressions, this is equal parts Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre .
I think p. Melka has a consulting hand in this. After being opened 24 hours, the wine is better; which tends to he a hallmark for wines that will have excellent aging potential. Whoever said Sierra foothills hasn’t tried this wine. — 4 months ago
Blend of 83% Cab Sauv, 11% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot made by Philippe Melka. Deep Ruby with purple hues, aromas of black and blue fruits with herb spice and earthy notes. On the palate blueberry, blackberry and plum flavors with cacao, leather and tobacco. Firm tight grippy tannins, well balanced integrated nicely with smoky oak, long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy character. Tried twice, still too young, keep corked for a few years. — a month ago
