93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Metisse Cabernet Sauvignon Jumping Goat Vineyard is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot and 7% Merlot aged in French oak, of which 85% was new. The wine, which is made at the Vineyard 29 high-tech facility north of St. Helena, possesses a dense saturated ruby/purple color as well as a sweet kiss of black currants, cedar, toast, gravel and flowers. Ripe and medium to full-bodied with velvety tannins (a Melka trademark), this multidimensional, layered, rich, supple wine can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 7% Merlot): Bright, saturated ruby-red. Black fruits, licorice and mocha on the very ripe nose. Soft, plush and seamless, with considerable early appeal to the fruit-driven flavors of raspberry, plum and mocha. Just enough energy to maintain its shape. This liquid confection reminded me a bit of a Pomerol. A big boy, finishing with sweet but serious tannins that reverberate in the mouth and saturate the palate on the very long aftertaste. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2011)
