Full-bodied and very concentrated at present, with aromas of crushed stone and cocoa.
A complexity of dark, black-fruit flavors, like blackberries, anise and black cherry. As big as it is, there's plenty of balance and freshness for early drinking; and its already polished finish should reward enjoyment for the next several years.
Tiny Morisoli Vineyard sits at the foot of Mt. St. John on the western edge of the renowned Rutherford Bench, from which many of Napa Valley's finest Cabernets are born. The benchland is slightly elevated and considerably flat, with gravelly and sandy loam deposited from millennia of ancient creeks meandering through it on the way to the river. The vineyard is almost entirely organic and no herbicides are ever applied.
Fermentation: Stainless Steel
18 month barrel aged.
A muscular yet refined wine, dark-ruby in color.
