Melka 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
A spicy, dark fruit jumble. The nose is alive! Plenty of currant and plum to go with the spices and oak.
The palate buzzes instantly. The acidity is electric like lightening in a bottle. Definitely a wine for big kids. Young palates need not apply. The tannins are slightly dusty and smooth. The acidic structure makes it seem as if its huge but rather the contrary. It’s a bit restrained. You have to wait for the acids to subside like the removal of a mask. Show me your personality! The finish is ironically short and to the point. Definitely an interesting adventure.

Winemaker Notes: “Dense, dark and simply delicious. These three descriptors vividly explain this wine. The aromas of black currants are intermixed with cedar, earth and vanillin. This full-bodied and opulent wine has a velvety texture and seamlessly integrated tannins. Undoubtedly one of the best made CJ’s to date.” • 1300 cases
