Top Notes For
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 firm but opens quickly, long finish ending with fruit and toasty spice. Tasting great, still has room to run.

Another highly detailed set of notes lost by Delectable! Guys come on, I'm working here...

I'll try to remember what I had written, but now it won't be as eloquent. Muddled blue/black fruit on the nose and palate. Hints of black olive, anise, bell pepper. Full, round, satisfying body. Medium plus alcohol, medium acidity, firm yet smooth tannins. Super long finish. Hold or more fun... DRINK!
