The region is known for its gravelly soils which produce rich and opulent red wines with fine-grained tannins and incredible complexity.
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.
With a seductively aromatic nose of black truffle, cedar and mulberry this Morisoli Cabernet has suggestions of mint, dusty earth and leather. On the palate, there are deep, focused flavors of black cherry, wild blackberry, dark plum and chocolate. “Classic Napa Cabernet,” says Winemaker Brooks Painter. Drink now-2015.
Some of California’s most sought-after and expensive wines come out of the Rutherford AVA, the historical core of the Napa Valley and from where V. Sattui has been producing Preston Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons for more than thirty-three years.
