Critical Acclaim

VN92+ Vinous Dec 2014

"Melka’s 2013 Metisse Jumping Goat pulses with energy that gives an extra dimension of pure vibrancy to the flavors. Cinnamon, exotic flowers, citrus and mocha blossom in the glass, adding considerable nuance and complexity to a core of expressive dark fruit. This is a superb wine in the making." (92–95 pts.)

RP92 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Oct 2015

"The 2013 Metisse Jumping Goat Vineyard (78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot and 7% Merlot) from this vineyard in St. Helena was coiled and tightly knit, but showing loads of upside and potential. An opaque ruby/purple color and notes of strained blackcurrants, camphor and licorice were all present in this full-bodied wine, which also has a subtle dose of toasty oak (about 70% new French barrels are used). This wine needs another 2–3 years of cellaring and should keep well for two decades or more." (92 pts.)

VN95 Vinous Oct 2015

"Melka’s 2013 Metisse Jumping Goat impresses for its energy, tension and nuance, all of which serve to balance the wine’s inherent richness. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and pomegranate are pushed forward in a wine that exudes richness. This is an especially fresh, vibrant wine for this northern sector of St. Helena, most likely because of the inclusion of a good deal of Petit Verdot in the blend. All the elements are in the right place." (95 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
