Morisoli Cabernet Sauvignon

Morisoli Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Details
Price: $65.00 per bottle

Description: The 2002 Morisoli Cabernet Sauvignon is inky purple in color with a blackberry, graphite, earth, spice and mineral-scented bouquet. These enticing aromas lead to dense flavors of black currants, wild plums, a hint of blueberry and creamy vanilla that build to a full-bodied layered finish. This wine is richly textured and seamless across the palate with gorgeous fruit, ripe tannins and nicely integrated acidity. The Morisoli Cabernet always has a sense of grace and elegance and this 2002 has quite a voluptuous finish. Wow! This may just be our best bottling yet.

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.
