06’ Melka Metisse. 83% Cabernet 13% Merlot 4% PV

Similar to the vice versa tonight. They’re both polished and approachable wines. I would recommend a short 15 minute decanting. Hell... let it open up in your glass.

Looking at this wine you would’ve never guessed it was 12 years old.

Dark red(crimson)almost to the edge of the glass.
In your face & up front style of this...quite appealing. Black plum, blueberries, licorice. Well integrated oak, with silky tannins. Lingers on the back of the palate for a good 30 seconds. Full- bodied & delicious. Drink this in it’s prime. 2/3 great years in it.

Just decanted a bottle of 2005. Excited to see the difference from a few years ago. It was amazing then and must be stupendous now. One of my favorites.
