2008 Morisoli Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2008 Morisoli Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Dark red in color with fresh aromas of sun-ripened raspberries, allspice, and a hint of toasted coconut. The nose develops into milk chocolate and cigar box with notes of spice and cedar. With a full palate and soft tannins, this well-built wine has layers of cherry and dusty cocoa, leading into a long, rich finish.



HARVEST & WINEMAKING

This vineyard is in the iconic area of many high-end, cult-status Rutherford wines. The grapes were hand-picked at 26.3Brix on October 14, then cluster sorted before a 2-day cold soak and small-batch fermentation with French yeast. The juice was gently pumped over 2-3 times each day during fermentation. In barrel, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation and aged for 22 months in French oak before being racked twice and bottled in August 2010. The wine rested in our underground cellar until its release December 2012.

Notes:
This wine shows the soft, dusty tannins and sour red cherry fruit that the vineyard is known for, while more than four years have mellowed it to beautiful drinkability. Should continue to develop in the cellar for another 10

Notes:
Presenting a combination of fresh red cherry fruit and darker flavors, this is a chewy cabernet from a prime Rutherford benchland site. It builds on the supple richness of its tannins with a layer of oak spice and while the w
