*** got some? Sweet. ***
Winemaker Philippe Melka says: "Tons of clove, wild cherry, vanilla bean, and caramelized figs entice the nose. Great acidity on the palate with flavors of freshly cracked black pepper, cassis, boysenberry, spiced rum and a lingering finish. The herbaceous notes will make this wine pair delightfully with barbecued fare."
We can’t argue one bit with his assessment! Get it QUICK though!

About The Producer
Philippe Melka was born, educated and trained in Bordeaux. He worked at some amazing Chateaux, including Petrus and Haut-Brion. In addition to working side-by-side with his friends at Parallel Wines, he crafts several more of Napa Valley's most sought-after wines.
Philippe's touch is clearly evident in the wines he makes, although he believes in strictly noninterventionist winemaking, designed to let the fruit produced by a great vineyard - not the art of the winemaker - shine through. "I don't use any tricks," Despite his high-profile status, Philippe is humble about his many accomplishments. With a wonderful mix of humor and dedication, he applies his skills to every aspect of producing Parallel Wines. Philippe’s credentials are staggering, but what continues to be most impressive to us is the man himself. His blend of hard work, integrity, affability, loyalty, joie de vie, and commitment to friends and family, surpass his terrific skill in blending wines.
