Saturated ruby-red. Floral aromas of raspberry, mocha, licorice, chocolate and mint; slightly roasted aspect. Fat, sweet and mouthfilling; currant and black plum flavors are brightened by ripe, integrated acidity. A lovely combination of power and finesse. Finishes with substantial but fine tannins; initially showed an edge of acidity but became more harmonious with aeration.

Metisse is the name of the limited production wine made by the talented young French winemaking consultant, Philippe Melka (also the winemaker for Seavey and J. Lail Vineyards). The 1997 Proprietary Red (450 cases made from 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet Franc) is a blend that is similar to that of the famed Chateau Haut-Brion, but the wine tastes more like a Pomerol. Deep ruby/purple, with an exuberant, exotic nose of espresso beans lathered in melted chocolate, and jammy cherry/cassis. Full-bodied and velvety-textured, this opulent, hedonistic, gorgeously textured wine is already thrilling to drink.
