Was Aristotle right when he said the whole is greater than the sum of its parts? Well, when we add up the four select vineyard sites chosen for this 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet blend . . . It’s a resounding YES! Toasted spice aromas of ripe plum tartine meld with a touch of espresso and jasmine flower. On the palate lush flavors of black raspberry add richness to a beautifully balanced medium bodied wine with soft tannins rounding out the dry finish.
The 2017 Morisoli Vineyard Cabernet opens with Intense aromas of bright blackcherry fruit intermingle with subtle hints of thyme, baking spice and toasty pie crust. Firm velvety tannins and silky mouthfeel on the palate give structure to flavors of baker’s chocolate, roasted black plum and Linzer torte. A bright lingering finish provides that classic counterpoint to power that is the hallmark of elegance!
The 2017 Holbrook Mitchell Vineyard Cabernet - This full-bodied wine has beautiful aromas of dark black cherry, earthy loam, and subtle leather. On the palate, notes of blackberry compote, mocha and roasted espresso give way to firm and well-integrated tannins for a finish that is pleasingly dry and lingering.
