2014 Morisoli Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

This dark, reddish-black Cabernet Sauvignon has immediate aromas of blackberry, sweet tobacco, and leather. There is a floral component of violets, as well as juicy black raspberry, and undernotes of granite, wet stone, and clove. On the palate, the wine is full of flavors of spice, clove, mocha, bittersweet chocolate, and chocolate covered cherries, flowing into a flavorful finish. Cellar 10-15 years or decant when young.

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

Harvest 2014 started with the scare of drought. Luckily, some perfectly timed spring rain helped develop nice vineyard canopies. Likely due to the dry winter, we had an early bloom and an even earlier ripening than 2013. Not only that, we had one of the largest earthquakes in decades rock the valley on the eve of harvest. Undeterred, but with many vintners picking up the pieces of broken barrels and spilled wine, harvest 2014 charged on with perfect, mild weather through the end of the growing season. This led to high quality grapes and even higher quality wine which we are delighted to share with you. Winery Exclusive
