Melka 'Mekerra' Proprietary Red 2014
The 2014 Proprietay Blend from Philippe & Cherie Melka is a beautifully approachable wine made from 51% Cabernet Frank and 49% Merlot source entirely from Knights valley in northern Sonoma. After being aged for 21 months in new French oak t was bottled in June 2016. 350 cases produced.
"The 2014 is a superb blend from our high elevation mountain vineyard and is a testament to the 7 years of wines being produced from it. A perfumed nose full of smoke, tar, raspberries and herbs leads into a silky sweet entry that has a smooth creaminess with great energy and brightness. An extremely inviting wine that leans more towards having a merlot-like influence despite the Cabernet franc in slightly higher proportion. The finish boasts sublime tannins and pure finesse." - Philippe & Cherie Melka, proprietors
