This 2011 vintage has a fragrant ripe boysenberry bouquet and a flavor profile of ripe blackberry with a little black cherry and hints of sweet cola. There's just enough oak in the prolonged finish which, unlike many Russian River Zins that can be big and high-alcohol, is silky smooth.
“Powerful, Nuanced, Impeccably Balanced” Proprietary Bordeaux Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
Proving that power and nuance are not always mutually exclusive, the 2010 Paradiso is deep and impressively extracted, with cocoa, licorice and tobacco aromas keying on plentiful, optimally-ripened black fruit flavors—currant, blackberry and cassis—partnered with complementary oak spice and seasoned with a subtle briariness.
"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.
This premium proprietary blend which we have named Paradiso (Pahr-a DEEZ-0h) is from the vaunted 2007 vintage, widely considered one of the finest of the past decade or more. The blend is 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc.
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.
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.
