The 2015 Forté reveals aromas of bright red and black berries, vanilla, and orange rind that lead to flavors of dark chocolate, whiskey, and toasty oak. The wine spent 18 months resting in neutral French oak barrels.
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 1986, we have been fortunate to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel from this very special place in Napa Valley.
