Tasting Notes for Morlet Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Morlet Estate 2016

The Morlet Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Morlet Estate 2016 is a masterpiece that reflects the dedication and artistry of the Morlet family in crafting exceptional wines. This vintage epitomizes the essence of Napa Valley's terroir, showcasing the unique characteristics of the Morlet estate vineyards.

In the glass, the wine reveals a deep, garnet hue, hinting at its richness and complexity. On the nose, intoxicating aromas of ripe blackberries, cassis, and dark cherries intertwine with subtle notes of cedar, tobacco, and graphite, creating a symphony of scents that captivate the senses.

Upon the first sip, the palate is greeted with luxurious layers of flavor. Luscious black fruit flavors mingle with hints of plum, espresso, and dark chocolate, while velvety tannins provide structure and depth.

Critic Ratings

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 97:
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Morlet Estate comes from a vineyard just outside of Saint Helena and it’s always a more structured, masculine wine compared to the Passionnement release. Opulent notes of black fruits, chocolate, smoked earth, and some obvious minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, structured, big-boned Cabernet Sauvignon that’s going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 2-3 decades.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Rated 96:
Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaux cuttings, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Morlet Estate features bold notions of crème de cassis, mocha, Black Forest cake and hoisin with hints of chargrill, sautéed herbs and truffles. While generously fruited and full-bodied, the palate reveals beautiful elegance and bags of finesse, displaying super ripe, grainy tannins with great freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced.
