Metisse Red Blend Philippe Melka Napa Valley 2005

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Legendary winemaker and eonologist Phillipe Melka produces a tiny quantity of this intense Bordeaux-style blend. A favorite of Robert Parker who scored it 95 points saying "The 2005 Metisse has soared in quality since I tasted it last year, putting on weight and showing much more drama and intensity than I thought. The final blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot has it all – a deep ruby/purple color and a beautiful nose of creme de cassis, vanilla, coffee bean, and spice box. The wine is full-bodied, has superb richness, silky tannins, and a very layered, rich mouthfeel. This is a sensational wine that can be drunk now or cellared for at least two decades or more." Extremely Limited!!
