"There are approximately 500 cases of this proprietary blend made by the talented and increasingly fashionable French winemaking consultant, Philippe Melka. A combination of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, the 2004 Metisse has tightened up since bottling, but it reveals medium to full body as well as a lovely, pure perfume of creme de cassis, white chocolate, black cherries, spice, and subtle background oak (about 75% new French barrels are utilized). Made from fruit purchased from vineyards owned by Jim and Stephanie Gamble as well as the well-known viticulturist, David Abreu, it should drink beautifully for 15 or more years." - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #168 (Dec 25, 2006)
