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.
2009 Fiftyrow Napa Valley Morisoli Cabernet
This racy cab shows blackberry, dark plum, black cherry, chocolate and tobacco leaf. The Rutherford Dust the area is known for gives the wines tannins and texture a cocoa-powder like finish. The well integrated oak adds to the generous aromas and expansive flavors.
