    A strong wine for the year, 2011 Metisse La Mekerra Vineyard is dark, sumptuous and rich. The 2011 is a bit more floral, higher-toned and more nervous than the 2010, but it has excellent balance and plenty of potential. The firm tannins will require a few years to soften, so readers will have to be patient. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2025.

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.
