Tiny Morisoli Vineyard sits at the foot of Mt. St. John on the western edge of the renowned Rutherford Bench, from which many of Napa Valley’s finest Cabernets are born. The benchland is slightly elevated and considerably flat, with gravelly and sandy loam deposited from millennia of ancient creeks meandering through it on the way to the river. The vineyard is almost entirely organic and no herbicides are ever applied.

"The Morisoli Vineyard has long been one of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Napa Valley, and it consistently produces one of the strongest Cabs in the V. Sattui arsenal. This beautiful wine is rich and dense on the palate, with a nose of cassis and ripe blackberry and spice. The oak is beautifully judged, lending warmth and a hint of spice. This smooth, supple gem of a Cab took gold at the Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition in San Diego recently." Robert Whitley Jan 28, 2014
