Scores & Accolades

    "Lots of sweet berries with hints of jam and flowers on the nose, following through to a full body with round, soft tannins and a juicy finish. Hints of smoked wood at the end. Drink or hold.” - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com

    “The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford), from Morisoli, stands out for its distinctive floral, savory profile. Lavender, mint, sage and opulent dark blue/purplish fruit all open in the glass. Readers will find tons of Rutherford character. This is one of the most forward wines in the range.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2021

Vintage

Overall, 2017 proved to be a slightly smaller yielding vintage but one of exceptional quality. A brief period of warm weather occurred during Labor Day weekend which accelerated the harvest in some areas. Temperatures subsided just when we needed and the fruit was allowed to mature and ripen perfectly on the vines before harvest officially began. Overall, a quick and intense harvest, with althea fruit picked within two to three weeks, but the quality of the vintage shows great flavor intensity, perfect ripening and maturity, lovely balance and complexity.
