Morlet Family Vineyards Morlet Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Available for:
A hue of deep bright ruby red. Intense and complex bouquet of red cherry and blackberry intermixed with notes of minerals (graphite, wet river rock), licorice, fresh blond tobacco and a hint of black currant. Full-bodied, the palate is reminiscent of the nose, with a richly tannic yet round frame 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.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Morlet Estate comes from the Morlets' estate vineyard (6 acres located just around the estate) and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It's another backward, youthful wine that needs bottle age yet offers stunning purity in its cassis and blackberry fruits as well as notes of rocky minerality, spice box, white flowers, graphite, and lead pencil. As with many of Luc's 2017s, there's a Bordeaux vibe in its aromas and tannin profile, and this full-bodied Cabernet has nicely integrated acidity, flawless balance, and enough structure to warrant a solid 4-5 years or more of bottle age. It should be one of the longer-lived wines in the lineup. This beauty isn't far off the 2016!

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Morlet Estate emerges from Luc and Jodie Morlet's estate vineyard in St. Helena's Northern Corridor. Sensual and alluring, the 2017 has so much to offer. Here the fruit expression leans towards the red end of the spectrum. Inky red fruit, blood orange, raspberry jam and a host of exotic floral/spice overtones give the Estate its extroverted personality. I would cellar the 2017 for a few years to allow the tannins to fully integrate. There is plenty to look forward to, that much is obvious.
