(From 2007 Vintage) The 2007 Morisoli Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark, almost black, purple color with a focused nose of blackberries, cassis, black cherries, allspice, and sloe plums along with pronounced graphite and cedar notes. Warm and inviting on the palate, this full-bodied wine shows deep flavors of perfectly ripe black and red fruits accented by sweet tannins, bright acidity, and intriguing oak nuances. It finishes as it started and without pause - vibrant fruit flavors, silky tannins, and underlying oak nuances.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2004 Vintage) Mixing ripe cherry and raspberry fruit notes with less varietally precise hints of earth and wet leather, this full-bodied somewhat too tannic wine skirts the edges of murkiness but finds the path back to focus in the mouth with deep, rich flavors. It ends with a rustic dose of drying astringency, and while it has the stuffing to age, it represents a bit of a gamble.
Wine Spectator(From 2004 Vintage)
Wine Enthusiast(From 2005 Vintage) "The vineyard is in the heart of the Rutherford bench. The wine is rich in fruit and tannins, but a bit clumsy, with a chunky, tannic mouthfeel and jammy, direct blackberry and blueberry fruit flavors. Not ready for drinking now, but well-made, and should age well, as Cabs from this stretch tend to have a long life."
