Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes for Morlet Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnement 2017

Morlet Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnément 2017 is an exquisite expression of the Napa Valley's finest terroir and the Morlet family's dedication to crafting exceptional wines. This vintage embodies the passion and artistry that define Morlet Family Vineyards' winemaking philosophy.

In the glass, the wine presents a deep, garnet color, offering a glimpse into its depth and intensity. Aromas of ripe blackberries, dark cherries, and cassis immediately captivate the senses, accompanied by subtle hints of vanilla, cedar, and baking spices, imparted by oak aging.

Upon the first sip, the palate is enveloped in layers of opulent flavor. Rich and velvety, the wine showcases flavors of blackberry jam, plum, and dark chocolate, intertwined with nuances of espresso and tobacco. Silky tannins provide structure and texture, while vibrant acidity balances the wine's richness, ensuring a seamless and harmonious mouthfeel.

Critic Ratings

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 98:
While the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnement doesn't match the magical 2016, it's nevertheless a gorgeous wine that will stand up to anything in the vintage and is a heavenly wine. Loads of blackcurrants, cassis, damp earth, chocolate, and green tobacco dominate the bouquet of this powerful, full-bodied, opulent wine, which offers more decadence and sweet fruit than almost every other 2017 out there. With beautiful depth of fruit, ripe, silky tannins, and a blockbuster of a finish, it needs a year or three of bottle age and will evolve for two decades or more. The Passionnement is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and is always a selection across the single vineyards.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Rated 96:
Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 85% of the fruit in this barrel selection wine comes from Beckstoffer’s To Kalon and Missouri Hopper vineyards, while 10% is from the Morlet Estate vineyard in St. Helena, and 5% comes from the Mon Chevalier vineyard in Knights Valley. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnement gives up wonderfully fragrant notes of wilted roses, candied violets and black cherry compote with a core of crème de cassis, star anise, pencil shavings and unsmoked cigars plus a touch of bouquet garni. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers impressive energy with a firm, grainy texture and plenty of freshness, finishing long with lots of earthy/mineral layers. Should age beautifully!
