*2006 Melka Chloe & Jeremy Cabernet Sauvignon
Melka Chloe & Jeremy Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA 2006
Lean and earthy with dark berry flavors combine with vanilla and cinder box to excite the senses. Firm yet super juicy, this succulent Napa Valley classic is a wine that never disappoints. The velvety tannins integrate seemlessly with the acidity making this wine approachable even in its youth.
This wine joyfully commemorates our tenth vintage of CJ Cabernet. We have had such fun involving
our children with thisproject and teaching them the importance of integrity and dedication
CJ is an acronym for our two children, Chloe and Jeremy. We decided to make this wine as a fun project - something youthful in spirit, with vibrant fruit sources. The idea was to create one of the best value wines available. Our first vintage of CJ was 1996, the year Jeremy was born, and it was a mere 200 cases. Today, our yearly production is a consistent 1,500 cases. The vineyards that contribute to CJ are 100% Napa Valley, ranging from Coombsville to Calistoga. This is the wine you open up while cooking dinner, then bring to the table. It's meant to be enjoyed young with family and friends
