Morlet Estate Cabernet Sauvignon St Helena 2011

  • Country USA
  • Region Napa Valley
  • Case size 6 / 75cl
  • 16 months French oak
  • 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. 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. 

Described by Robert Parker as bing like 'a first-growth Pauillac', Morlet's Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes exclusively from the vineyards surrounding their restored stone winery just north of the town of St. Helena. Handcrafted using classical winemaking techniques and reminiscent of a true First Growth, this wine represents the precious memory of a very special place. The intense and complex bouquet is a mix of red cherry and blackberry, underlined with mineral notes, licorice, fresh blond tobacco, and a hint of blackcurrant. The palate is full-bodied, with a richly tannic yet round frame leading to a long, seamless, and elegant finish.
