The 2003 Métisse, a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot, is a 20-year wine from the famed Madrona Ranch. It offers beautiful scents of white chocolate, charcoal embers, flowers, blackberries, and currants. Aged in 75% new French oak, it is full-bodied with silky tannin, a superb texture, and a window of drinkability between 2007-2020. The 2004 Métisse, an identical blend from Madrona Ranch, boasts an intense, pure nose of licorice, blueberries, blackberries, and cassis. Silky tannin, well-integrated wood, and a full-bodied, opulent midpalate, as well as finish, are authoritative, yet exhibit terrific equilibrium and freshness. The 2004 should hit its peak in 4-5 years, and last for two decades.

Wine maker notes
Metisse is a French word meaning ”a blend of cultures”. We chose this name because it embodies both the spirit of our original concept (a blend of Bordeaux varietals - cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot) and our spirit as the winemakers (a blend of French and American). Our first Metisse vintage, in 1996, was the result of blending grape varietals and vineyard sources. A symbiotic relationship between Philippe and his clients led to an extraordinary blend of grapes from all over Napa Valley. Then, in 2003, we met Jim and Stephanie Gamble of Jumping Goat Vineyard. Together, we decided to make a single-vineyard Metisse. It seemed a natural progression for us, and fit our philosophy about wines expressing their native soil.

Producer
As the proprietors of Melka Wines, we’ve been sharing our passion for creating exceptional wine since 1996. You can get a glimpse of this passion in Philippe’s eyes, which look out at you from every bottle. Together, we enjoy the freedom to nurture and blend each varietal and our pursuit of excellence and balance in our wines is equaled only by our dedication to exceptional quality. Metisse represents single vineyard, soil specific wines from the heart of Napa Valley. Jumping Goat from the valley floor, Montbleau from gentle hills in St. Helena and Martinez from renowned Pritchard Hill. Mekerra is home to 3 specific wines that thrive due to their high elevation and unique soils. Majestique represents wines from vineyards around the world that inspire us. CJ Cabernet is our biggest production wine that is result of long term relationships with various growers throughout the Napa Valley. Our vision is to maintain the quality that we’ve established and that our customers have come to expect from all of our wines. The way we see it, a grape must tell the story of its native soil. Which is why you’ll find that every bottle of Melka wine expresses the voice of the soil, as well as our passion as experienced winemakers. – Philippe & Cherie Melka
