Smooth as a thick silk scarf and loaded with cassis and black fruit. Not near as complex as the Jumping Goat we had but a strong effort and so easy to drink.

Sipping Fine Wine

Philippe and Cherie Melka have been creating exceptional wines since 1996 with the releases of the CJ and Metisse wines. Deep Ruby with pronounced aromas of dark berry fruits with spice and oaky notes. On the palate flavors of fresh blackberry and plum with licorice and toasty cacao. Tannins are a bit rustic, long finish ending with fruit and toasty spice. Give this a few years.

A smooth blend. Black cherry, figs, cassis, nice mid-palette finish.
