Winemaker notes:

Our unique estate lies on the western foothills just north of the town of St. Helena.
Shallow loamy topsoil, rocky alluvial subsoil and full sun exposure create ideal
conditions for our Cabernet Sauvignon vines. We restored the 1880 stone winery,
which is illustrated on the label. Handcrafted using classical winemaking techniques
and with the uncompromising and ongoing pursuit of quality, this wine represents the
precious essence of a very special place, which our family calls home.

Dark and deep with a hue of deep bright ruby red. Intense and complex bouquet of
red cherry and blackberry intermixed with notes of minerals (graphite, wet river
rocks), licorice, fresh blond tobacco and a hint of fresh blackcurrant. Full bodied, the
palate is reminiscent of the nose, with a richly tannic yet round frame and with an
outstanding finesse. The tannins from both bench and foothill locations create a
harmonious ensemble, leading to a long, seamless and elegant finish. Built to age for
decades, this collectible wine will open up after a few years of cellaring and is
particularly representative of this special side of St. Helena. Morlet Estate features
the interaction of the loamy, well drained and rocky volcanic soil, the typical sunny
mountain climate and the low-interventionistic Morlet winemaking approach.
