"The newest offering, which is probably modeled after Robin Lail-s incredible Sauvignon Blanc Georgia, is the 2011 Mekerra Sauvignon Blanc from Knights Valley. It is a blend of 97% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle from hillside parcels that is fermented in French oak with indigenous yeasts. There is not much of it, but this is a killer Sauvignon boasting an exotic tropical, honeyed personality much in the California style of fruit, but also focused and structured, along the lines of a top Pessac-Leognan. Rich and medium to full-bodied, the Melkas have hit a home run with this sensational 2011 white wine. It should drink nicely for at least 4-5 years, possibly longer." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Oct 2013)
