The 2009 Metisse La Mekerra Vineyard (60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot - sounds like St.-Emilion's Cheval Blanc) continues to showcase this hillside vineyard that sits at a 2,300 foot elevation. Deep ruby/purple-hued with lots of black currant, tobacco leaf, plum and crushed rock characteristics, it is an expansive, savory, delicious wine that should be a real crowd-pleaser when released in a year or so.

About This Producer


Philippe and Cherie Melka, co-proprietors of Melka Wines, together share a passion and love for fine wines and a dedication to a simple, singular goal; to produce a high quality, limited production of fine wines. Philippe, born and trained in Bordeaux, is winemaking consultant to several of Napa Valley's premium wineries. Cherie, a long-time Californian, has pursued her career in the wine industry since 1988 as a trained enologist at some of California's greatest wineries.

The Metisse Proprietary Red Wine is made from a four acre vineyard located in St. Helena, California, next to Spottswoode winery, that was planted by David Abreu in 1999 to Bordeaux varieties. The soil profile, reminscent of Chateau Haut Brion, is very rich in gravels. The gravelly loamy texture allows the roots to penetrate deeply into the ground increasing the character and depth of the grapes.
