Dark garnet colored with captivating aromas of cassis, blackberry, cedar, dark chocolate, and forest floor. On the palate, it is full-bodied with broad flavors of currant, black cherry, espresso crema, clove, and graphite followed by hints of sweet oak, bright acidity, and those signature dusty tannins of the Rutherford appellation. True to form, this wine displays year after year the power and elegance that is so characteristic of this renowned vineyard.
Morisoli Vineyard is located in the heart of the Rutherford Bench, between Niebaum and Manley Lanes, at the base of Mount Saint John. This area has a worldwide reputation for producing complex, distinctive and age worthy wines. The unique terroir consists of well-drained, light, dusty, gravelly soil that produces grapes with vibrant flavor and impeccable balance. The resulting wines express equal parts power and finesse. This historic vineyard has been meticulously farmed by the Morisoli family for over a century. Each year, since 1987, we have been fortunate to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel from this very special place in Napa Valley.
