Grand Cru means ‘great growth,’ and in France’s Burgundy region, it’s the top of the pyramid for the highest-quality grapes. They only bestow that designation after prolonged observation of a site with a history of producing exceptional fruit.  If Napa Valley were to use the same system, the historic Morisoli Vineyard planted in the 1880s, which sits on the center of the iconic Rutherford Bench, would undoubtedly be on it. The vineyard’s neighbors include icons Staglin, Inglenook, and Scarecrow, and Elyse has been crafting wine from it for more than 25 consecutive vintages. If you’re looking for a wine with a powerful sense of place, remarkable balance, and incredible value, this Cabernet should top your list.

Morisoli Vineyard sits on gravelly bale, clay loam soils with excellent drainage. The site has a proven track record of producing fruit with bold flavors, depth, intriguing spice, and unmistakable Rutherford dust. Over the years, its fruit has graced the wines of BV’s flagship Georges de Latour Cabernet, Trujillo, V. Sattui, Sequoia Grove, Orin Swift Mercury Head, and the list goes on…

Elyse recognized the quality of Morisoli early on, and they’ve produced their flagship single-vineyard Morisoli Cabernet for more than 25 consecutive vintages, and this wine is a brilliant example of Morisoli Cabernet.

Description

2015 ELYSE MORISOLI VINEYARD CABERNET SAUVIGNON

“The Elyse Morisoli Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is an amazing wine that showcases intense Rutherford fruit, wrapped in an intriguing elegance and grace. The powerfully concentrated red and black fruits gracefully embrace and are heightened by the classic Rutherford dust. The crushed blackberry and iron characteristics combine with velvety minerals, purple flowers, and spiced vanilla to create even more drama. Secondary characteristics of cedar, espresso roast, and freshly turned earth add to the overall complexity. The penetrating, compact fruit combined with beautiful fruit tannins will allow this to drink beautifully for over a decade.”
95 Points
“Deep, dark red in color with layers of black fruit and spice aromas – cassis, black pepper, black cherries, nutmeg, plumbs, and cedar. The full-bodied palate gushes with ripe blackberries, currants, cherries, and espresso crema followed by warm, sweet oak, bright acidity, and those signature dusty tannins of the Rutherford appellation. True to form, this wine displays year after year the power and elegance that is so characteristic of this renowned vineyard.”
