Robert ParkerI retasted the 2007 Metisse La Mekerra Vineyard and it exhibited a medium to full body, lots of chocolate, black currant, espresso, plum and loamy soil characteristics and a luscious, round, medium to full-bodied personality. It is ideal for drinking over the next decade. This is the personal project of the increasingly respected and well-known French winemaking consultant, Philippe Melka, and his wife, Cherie. Their negociant blend called CJ comes from three Napa Valley sources, two in the southern region (Soda Canyon and Coombsville) and one from the northern sector of Calistoga. The La Mekerra Vineyard produces Melka's Pomerol/St.-Emilion-styled wine. It is normally a blend of two-thirds Merlot and one-third Cabernet Franc from Knight's Valley.
