Located in Rutherford (an AVA which has been long famous for its tenacity to produce exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon grapes), the Morisoli Vineyard sits on the valley floor and has been revered for its magical soil.
The vineyards of the historic Lewelling Estate were established in 1864 near the western foothills in St. Helena by pioneer winegrower John Lewelling. Here, the gravelly loam soil and microclimate combine to produce exceptional Cabernets with rich cherry, currant and berry flavors.

Wine Making Info:
This 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the region our winemaker calls the “golden rectangle”. It combines the power of one of Napa’s oldest vineyards, the Lewelling Estate with the “Rutherford dust” of the legendary Morisoli vineyard. Aged in new French oak barrels for 22 months, this well balanced, powerful wine comes together to achieve perfect symmetry
