Morey Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

Morey Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details

Description: Our first release—a 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley—is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that come from a celebrated vineyard located along the Silverado Trail in St. Helena. Southwest-facing, this vineyard is very well known for its voluptuous, silky red wines. Our 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception. Both complex and delicate, we love this wine for its inviting bouquet, its complex, unfolding body, and its lingering dancing on the palate. Great color and nice tannins complete this vintage. Overall, its elegance shines through exceedingly well!

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
