Morlet 2014 Mon Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Dark red with a hue of purple. Intense and complex bouquet ofred, black and blueberries intermixed with notes of minerals (graphite, wet river rocks) licorice, fresh blond tobacco and a hint of lavender. Full-bodied, the palate is reminiscent of the nose, with a richly tannic yet round frame and a great intensity. The hillside tannins and classical aromatic complexity create a harmonious ensemble leading to a very long finish. Built to age for decades, thiscollectible wine opens up after a few years of cellaring.

James Suckling - 94 Points
"Fantastic complexity. Blueberry, black currant and violets on the nose. Licorice too. Full body, rich and dense yet always shows tension and length. Layered. A baby now but shows brilliance. Needs four to fine years to come together. Tannic and structured."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 91+ Points
"From Knights Valley, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Malbec. More earthy, tannic, muscular and structured, with loads of spice, this wine comes from a vineyard across from the famous Les Pavots of Peter Michael. While it doesn’t quite have the fruit and intensity of the other red wines in Luc Morlet’s portfolio, readers who like more spice and earth in their Cabernet-based wines will appreciate it more than I did. Nevertheless, it is a backward wine, which is atypical for a 2014. Several years of bottle age will be beneficial."

Morlet Wines
Luc & Jodie Morlet produce vineyard designated wines and unique cuvées of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sémillon with Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle from Sonoma County as well as Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley. Meticulously farmed vineyards and low-intervention winemaking techniques produce powerful yet refined wines.

By taking old world principles and adapting them to California, the Morlet style results in wines which are harmonious in their intensity, richness, complexity and refinement. It is this notion of harmony that inspired their label logo, based upon 19th century French artist Mathurin Moreau’s sculpture entitled, ‘L’Harmonie’. Handcrafted, the Morlet wines clearly display personality, seamless character and graceful ageing capability.

The core of the Morlets’ endeavor is the eight-acre vineyard they planted on the Knights Valley bench, near Calistoga and facing the western slopes of Mount St. Helena. In addition to these family acres, they direct the farming under long-term contract on seven acres in the Sonoma Coast, Bennett Valley and Dry Creek as well as five acres in Oakville, Napa Valley. In St. Helena, near the family home, the wines are crafted and matured in a naturally cool cave, which was drilled into the volcanic rock. The production is limited to what they can make with their own hands.

Sold in the spring and the fall of each year through an online mailing list offering and in fine restaurants around the world, the Morlet wines are served at the most prestigious tables and are shared by wine connoisseurs and collectors.
