*2008 Melka Chloe & Jeremy Cabernet Sauvignon
Melka Chloe & Jeremy Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA 2008
This wine exhibits aromas of blueberry, anise and black currants along with subtle hints of Asian spices. This full-bodied, dense and concentrated wine is packed with rich fruit flavors. It possesses a velvety texture with a mouth feel full of layers. This wine is the best expression of some of the great hillside vineyards in southern Napa Valley.
In 2008, CJ has surpassed our expectations of a wine with incredible depth and character. This wine continues to epitomize the best value cabernet from Napa Valley
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
