The 2001 Morisoli Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby in color with aromas of black cherry, earthy mushroom, pencil shavings and graphite. On the palate the dense fruit shows deep currant and cassis flavors leading to wild violets and creamy vanilla. It has amazing weight and concentrated texture with layers and layers of complexity and long tannins on the finish. Once again, the Morisoli vineyard has given us a wine that is complexly powerful yet classically elegant. This 2001 bottling may be the most powerful yet! Pair this wine with beef, game and ripe cheeses.

Wine SpectatorHints of mature plum, coffee and cherry are nonetheless complex and concentrated, with a stewed plum and whiff of raisin, ending with a rustic edge, chewy tannins and hint of mineral and iron. Drink now through 2009. 120 cases made.
