The 2005 Preston Cabernet was voted “Best Cabernet & Best Red Wine in Napa Valley” at the 2007 California State Fair. This new vintage is sure to be a collector’s item from the highly regarded 2005 vintage.
Since 1994 V. Sattui has been producing stellar Cabernets from tiny Morisoli Vineyard, located in the very heart of Napa Valley’s Rutherford Appellation, planted in the deep rich soils on the western Napa Valley floor, just west of the small town of Rutherford.
125th Anniversary Vintage The 2010 Morisoli is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, a muscular yet refined wine, dark-ruby in color, full-bodied and very concentrated at present, with aromas of crushed stone and cocoa and with a complexity of dark, black-fruit flavors, like blackberries, anise and black cherry. As big as it is, there’s plenty of balance and freshness for early drinking; and its already polished finish should reward enjoyment for the next several years.
The grapes for this wine come from Preston Vineyard located in the Rutherford Appellation, an area where some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley is grown. The region is known for its gravelly soils which produce rich and opulent red wines with fine-grained tannins and incredible complexity.
Fingers of Pacific fog follow the Russian River inland, cooling its watershed ahead of the surrounding terrain and making the area markedly cooler. This appellation, already well-revered for its Pinot Noirs, has been very consistent with producing well-bred and extracted Zinfandels.
"Opulent ...Seductive ...Complex"
This premium proprietary blend which we have named Paradiso (Pahr-a DEEZ-0h) consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (89%), Merlot (8%) and Petit Verdot (3%). This is a profoundly complex and deeply scented wine, where both the grape varieties and the regions from which they came are distinctly expressed.
