2014 MORLET COEUR DE VALLEE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

From Jeb Dunnuck, “… boasts an incredibly sexy, full-bodied, thrillingly textured profile as well as to-die-for notes of blueberries, black cherries, dried herbs, and flowers. This powerful, blockbuster-styled beauty checks in near the top of the vintage, and while already drinking beautifully, it will keep for 15-20 years.” Jeb Dunnuck 97 POINTS

From Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate,“…The wine is incredibly complex with a dense purple color, a striking bouquet of violets, forest floor, licorice, fruitcake, blackberry and blackcurrants. It is powerful and rich with supple tannins and extraordinary concentration and purity. This is a magnificent wine to drink over the next 25 or more years.” Robert Parker 96 POINTS
