97pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
It's ready to drink now, or hold for a decade or three. Melka's Metisse Jumping Goat Vineyard has a tiny production, but we managed to grab some. It's a knockout example of Napa Valley terroir, with body and personality to spare.

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate:  "Composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Metisse Jumping Goat Vineyard sports a very deep purple-black color and nose of crème de cassis, dark chocolate, licorice and tar with touches of sage, cigar box and pencil lead. Full-bodied and densely packed with concentrated black berries and savory layers, it has a firm structure of grainy tannins and tons of vivacity, finishing long with exotic spices coming through. Drink 2018-2038. 375 cases were made." Dec 2017

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Jumping Goat Vineyard Métisse from Melka's vineyard in St. Helena near Spottswoode and Madrona Ranch, is radiant, supple and flamboyant in style, with all of the richness of the vintage very much in evidence. Black cherry, smoke, mocha, dark chocolate French oak notes all flesh out in this ample, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. There is so much to like here." Mar 2018

Winery:  "This wine has our most loyal following and it is no surprise as to why. Similar to the Graves region in Bordeaux, the wine is consistently perfume, with many layers that are so signature of the Jumping Goat vineyard. The nose is inviting, intriguing and intense boasting seductive dark cherry with hints of tar and oak. It is an extremely lush and balanced wine with savory layers which finishes long with superbly grainy tannins. The higher percentage of Petit verdot adds freshness and acidity to create a truly harmonious and complex wine. "

"The gravelly rocks from this site bring the expected elements of perfume and layered complexity. This is our 13th Jumping Goat and we couldn't be more proud of the result." ~ Philippe & Cherie Melka, Proprietors
