2013 MORISOLI-BORGES, Magnum

2013 MORISOLI-BORGES, Magnum

A bold and elegantly structured Cabernet Sauvignon showing layered aromas of black fruit and earthy spice balanced by sweet, velvety tannins and a lingering finish. Beautiful now, but excellent for cellaring 20 years or more.

Wine Profile
Ratings
• Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (94 Points) - The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Morisoli-Borges Vineyard, which comes from the Rutherford sector of Napa, shows beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit, camphor and incense, a full-bodied, nicely textured mouthfeel, sweet velvety tannins and a long finish. This is a beauty, and a wine that can be drunk now or cellared for another 20 years. • Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast Magazine (92 Points) – Compost aromas open this vineyard-designated wine, a full-bodied, densely concentrated exploration of juicy black licorice, coconut, and dust. Soft and lengthy, it develops slowly in the glass, providing a vibrant showcase for the site. • James Suckling (91 Points) – Lots of ripe and unctuous fruit showing a light raisin and spice character. Full body, soft tannins and a juicy finish. This is ripe and smooth. Drink or hold.
Vineyard Notes
Mike Morisoli farms this vineyard, located just south of Niebaum Lane, within the heart of the famed Rutherford Bench. The Morisoli family started growing grapes in western Rutherford in the early 1950s. Now sustainably farmed by the 3rd generation, much of the vineyard was planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in the late 1980s. This wine comes entirely from these 25 year old vines, and it expressed the Rutherford appellations' famous "dust" character, with its unique soft, silky tannins.
Winemaker Notes
2013 was a stunning vintage that produced absolutely remarkable wines – possibly even better than the magnificent 2012 ‘nearly perfect’ wines. Both growing seasons were dry and early ripening, which brought the fruit to full maturity while avoiding fall rains. The temperatures were on the cool side which retained excellent acidity and wonderful aging potential. The 2013 reds are complex and full-bodied, classic Napa Valley style. - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
A perfect accompaniment for ribeye steaks, wild game, and flavorful cheeses.
