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.
2007 Fiftyrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
“An impressive discovery for me, Fiftyrow’s 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from Rutherford’s Morisoli Vineyard and Lewelling Vineyards (one of my favorite under-the-radar Cabernet estates). This pure Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue in addition to notes of white chocolate, black currants, earth and a Pauillac-like cedarwood note. This is a fullbodied, exuberant effort with good texture, lots of purity, depth and richness as well as terrific overall balance. It should age well for 10-15 or more years.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
