Metzker Family Estates is a small family winery in the heart of Napa Valley, California. Their dedication is centered around exquisite, single-vineyard wines.
We were lucky enough to try three of their blends: Rosé of Syrah, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Here are our thoughts:
Rose: The pleasant scent of strawberry is immediate. There is also quite a bit of floral here but a deeper sweeter floral, perhaps violet. As far as fruit, lychee and overripe apricots come to mind. No spice. Very bright on the palette, upbeat acidity. Grapefruit is abundant, followed by undertones of strawberry skins. Definitely a dry wine, and slight tannins because of the deep color.
Chardonnay: Honeyed overripe melon and citrus on the nose. The palate is delicately oaked, medium-full bodied with hints of nectarine, lychee, peach and grapefruit. Great balance across the palate with a smooth buttery texture. Medium minus acidity and delicate touches of white pepper, apple and honey biscuit dance across a lengthy finish.
Pinot Noir: If you’re not a red wine person this is surely the one to flip you! Upon the first sip we were blown away. So smooth and earthy, tastes like fresh picked berries– predominantly cherries and strawberries. Beautiful color, a bright ruby tone. Finishes with a vibrant acidity that calls for another sip.
We raise our glasses to Metzker! Cheers!
