2016 Melka Cabernet Sauvignon CJ  (Napa Valley) 92

Medium/full-bodied, dark in color and already expressive, the wine is balanced, round, forward and polished, with a core of ripe, sweet blackberries, licorice, smoke, espresso and earthy nuances. You can drink this for its upfront fruit, or age it 5-7 years for more earthy characteristics. 92 Points

2012 Melka Mekerra  (Knights Valley) 96

This wine would be at home in any tasting of Bordeaux Right Bank wines. Produced from a blend of 51% Cabernet Franc and 49% Merlot, the wine is ripe, full bodied and rich, but it also retains freshness and the spicy, floral and licorice notes make all the sweet, ripe fruits even better. 96 Points

2009 Melka Mekerra  (Knights Valley) 91

From a blend of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot, this beautiful wine could easily make itself at home in the Right Bank of Bordeaux. Add in the ripe, juicy plums, fat cherries, smoke, licorice and ample ripe tannins and you have a winner. 91 Points

2009 Melka Métisse Jumping Goat  (Napa Valley) 91

Black raspberry jam, cocoa, blueberry and coffee bean scents create the nose. Forward, soft and round in style, the wine ends with a sweet, olive and black cherry finish. I like the style and character of this wine and the label. 91 Points
