2013 MORLET LES PETITS MORLET CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$95.00

Legendary Winemaker Luc Morlet is one of the world’s greatest winemakers and I would estimate that most of his wines range in the $165-$300/btl range.  Under his Morlet Label, Luc has garnered multiple perfect 100-Point ratings and his wines reign supreme amidst Napa Valley Cult Wines… Wine Spectator rated the Overall 2013 Vintage in Napa Valley 97 Points and Superb! Here’s a Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley aged to perfection: DRINK NOW thru 2055!

At $95, I cannot put into words how incredible his 2013 Cabernet is, and wines of this caliber, and at this price, never last long… The Morlet Les Petits Cabernet is a Cuvée style blend constructed from younger vines grown on many of the iconic properties that Luc works with.  Like many great 2013 Cabernets, the aromas are focused, expressive, and on the palate the wine is deep, rich, supple and full of vast complexity.

Luc is one of the world’s greatest winemakers and his story began in France, where he grew up on his family’s vineyard… please order a case first, and then read more below…

Description

2013 MORLET LES PETITS MORLET CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Winemaker Notes: “Displaying a very intense bouquet of black currant, candied red and black cherries and mocha, intermixed with hints of blond tobacco leaves and earthy notes of leather and toasted red pepper. This wine possesses youthful, yet sweet tannins and is characterized by its overall richness, suave character and approachability.”

“It is conceivable that 2013 might one day be regarded as one of the all-time great vintages for Napa Valley. The wines truly are that special.” ~ Vinous

After Luc earned Master Degrees in both Viticulture & Enology, he perfected his skills making Bordeaux style wines, under the guidance of consultant Jacques Boissenot… (World-Renowned Boissenot flourished in Bordeaux’s Médoc region, including first-growths Latour, Lafite Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild and Margaux.) …In the mid-90’s Luc married Jodie his American Sweetheart he met in Napa Valley, when he first crafted the highly-regarded the Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay.
