2013 Ceja Vineyards Napa Valley-Carneros Chardonnay and 2013 Metzli Red Wine Blend
A dip into the cellar and I pulled these two gems from a couple previous Ceja Vineyards wine club shipments.One of my first wineries I had the opportunity to visit on my initial trip to wine country several years ago. Tonight's lineup includes the 2013 Carneros Chardonnay and the 2013 Metzli- The Aztec Goddess Of the Moon a rich round red blend.
The 2013 Carneros Chardonnay is showing beautifully with mouth watering fruit and acidity. Aromas of apple and pear with hints of wild floral notes, lemon citrus and honey. The palate is bright and succulent loaded with ripe fruit, honey and hints of vanilla. There is a beautiful richness and texture to this wine. Excellent when paired with food or just sipping with friends.
The 2013 Metzli was a wine club exclusive. A wonderful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The nose exhibits layers of cherry, raspberry and plum with intermingled notes of black current and rich vanilla.The mouth shows luscious character with the red and dark fruit giving way to anise and mocha. Soft finish for a wine with such character. Beautiful blend Ceja's.
