Vice Versa Winery
So, 100-point winemaker Philippe Melka’s touch with Cabernet is nothing short of golden. According to Robert Parker, one of Melka’s 2014 Vice Versa wines “flirts with perfection. And it’s “hard not to be impressed” with the whole lineup. While the 93-point Vice Versa Le Petit Vice Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 shows the skill that Melka applied at Bryant Family, Dana Estates, and Hundred Acre. Yet, one look at Vice Versa’s vineyard sources reminds that the word “compromise” is not in Melka’s or proprietor Patrice Breton’s vocabulary.
The Vice Versa Le Petit Vice Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 boasts the prestigious Napa vineyard sources. Including the Beckstoffer Dr. Crane and Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyards that both boast 100-pointers. In addition, the Stagecoach Vineyard is perched on Pritchard Hill, home of some of California’s most hallowed soils — without the price tag. Finally, add in peerless fruit from one of the top Cabernet vintages in memory. Most of all, this wine has a true triple-digit pedigree, the perfect stage for Philippe Melka to make his magic.
Winemaker Phillipe Melka
One can hardly look at any aspect of the Vice Versa operation without seeing proprietor Patrice Breton’s commitment to producing a world-class Cabernet. His first winemaker was Napa legend Paul Hobbs, whose enormous shoes were more than filled in 2014 by Philippe Melka. Melka, the author of a handful of 100-point wines and veteran of some of Napa’s most in-demand cult wineries, promptly made an impression on Robert Parker with Vice Versa’s flagship wine: a 99-point, $400 effort.
