THE MORISOLI VINEYARD
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. While there is something special about the soil of this vineyard, the passion of its grower, Gary Morisoli, allows the grapes grown here to exceed a vintner’s wild imagination. Add to that, our winemaker Gary Galleron, has been working with the fruit from this vineyard for over 20 years, consistently putting out stellar wines that withstand the test of time.
2008 Fiftyrow Napa Valley Morisoli Cabernet
The 2008 Morisoli Cabernet has a saturated ruby/purple color. On the palate, this full-bodied wine shows deep flavors of cassis, blackberries, and dark plums accented by dusty earth and crushed stone. It finishes with vibrant fruit flavors, silky tannins, and underlying oak nuances. As always, it displays the power and elegance that is so characteristic of the Morisoli Vineyard as well as Rutherford.
