MORLET 2015 LES PETITS MORLET CABERNET SAUVIGNON
“Luc Morlet … knows how to bring the French savoir-faire of complexity, elegance and precision to the ripe, concentrated, intense fruit of California.” ~ Robert M. Parker, Jr.
Winemaker Luc Morlet 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.”
From Jeb Dunnuck, “Slightly deeper colored than the ’14, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Les Petits Morlet offers more black fruits, graphite, scorched earth, and tobacco. It’s another full-bodied yet finesse-driven wine from this estate that has good acidity, ripe tannin, and plenty of class. As with the 2014, it will keep for over a decade.” JEB DUNNUCK 93 POINTS
