Montbleau Vineyard

Melka Métisse Napa
Select Vintage
Allocated to active members

Our Estate vineyard located adjacent to the winery in the AVA of Saint Helena is a two-acre parcel with vines dating over 30 years. Soils are rich with obsidian and loam which creates a wine with a defined relaxed power. The aromatics reveal notes of earthiness, mushroom, with toasty components and deep dark fruit. It immediately feels like an incredibly serious wine that is about to make a bold statement. Dense and rich with sweet fruits, seamlessly balanced and a very long finish, this blockbuster wine will be a stand out Cabernet in any cellar.

The soils are full of obsidian and these 30+ year old vines have an amazingly deep root system.  The aromatics lean toward cassis and raspberry with lavender and Mediterranean spices.  The wine is loaded with power and structure but also maintains its liveliness.  the finish is very long and the tannins are classic dusty Cabernet tannins.  This is the only 100% Cabernet wine in our portfolio.  Recommended to decant.
