Morisoli Vineyard consists of 53 contiguous acres on the famed Rutherford Bench in the Napa Valley. Gary Morisoli is the fourth generation of his family to grow grapes on this historic property, which has been family-farmed for over 100 years. Primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, the fruit from this vineyard is some of the most sought after in the Napa Valley. Surrounded by Staglin Family Vineyard, Scarecrow, Joseph Phelps Vineyards and Inglenook, Morisoli Vineyard fruit exhibits classic “Rutherford Dust” qualities and rich Cabernet Sauvignon character.
The 2018 Morisoli is a quintessential Rutherford wine, with rich blackberry notes balanced with delicate wintergreen on the nose. Savory flavors of tobacco, black currant and figgy jam create a luscious mouthfeel on the palate reminiscent of Rutherford dust. A classic, dense finish shows powdery tannins and an umami flavor that makes you want to come back for more.
