'12 jumping goat is a lush wine with loads of fruit & soft tannins.

We were the first group to taste at Melka's new tasting room. As a huge PM fan, it was a delight. Yes, the St. Emillion and I shared a moment!

Damn, the Goat was talking tonight / this is one of my Melka faves and it only gets better with a little air.

Clearly a well constructed wine. Kirsch/compote. A bit too much jam for me at this point but I have a bunch and will look forward to readdressing in another 24 months or so.

Dark fruits....velvety.... not bad but isn’t worth the price point

Decant this for 1.5 hours and you won't be disappointed. Soft tannins. Will be great in several years.
