98pts Jeb Dunnuck

From a heritage vineyard in Rutherford, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Morisoli Vineyard is all Cabernet Sauvignon that saw 22 months in new French oak. Beautiful red, blue, and black fruits as well as classic Cabernet herbal, cedar, and Pauillac-like lead pencil notes flow to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, yet incredibly elegant 2019 that does everything right. Drink it over the coming 15-20 years.

96pte The Wine Independent

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Morisoli Cabernet Sauvignon charges out with notes of Black Forest cake, blackberry preserves, and creme de cassis plus violets, espresso, and bay leaves. Full-bodied, it is rich and velvety with compelling purity and great length.

95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Notes of scorched coffee, brown sugar and concentrated black cherries appear on the nose of the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Morisoli Vineyard. From this prized Rutherford vineyard, this is a bold, dark-toned effort, full-bodied and muscular yet velvety, with a rich, chocolate-and-mocha finish.

95pts Decanter

A powerful, heady red with hints of coffee beans, toffee and raspberry liqueur, plus lavish oak spices. Satiny fruit on entry glides across the palate, revealing blackberry, blueberry, layers of earth and crushed stone minerality, and intense tannins. Finishes extremely long with pops of leather, tobacco and wild herbs. A lovely Cabernet from winemaker Anthony Biagi.

92-94pts Vinous

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Morisoli Vineyard comes across as a bit wild and rough around the edges. Savory and soil tones that are so characteristic of this site abound, but the elements need a bit more cohesion. I trust that will come with time.

Vineyard Notes

Morisoli Vineyard consists of 53 contiguous acres on the famed Rutherford Bench in the Napa Valley. Gary Morisoli is the fourth generation of his family to grow grapes on this historic property, which has been family-farmed for over 100 years. Primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, the fruit from this vineyard is some of the most sought after in the Napa Valley. Surrounded by Staglin Family Vineyard, Scarecrow, Joseph Phelps Vineyards and Inglenook, Morisoli Vineyard fruit exhibits classic “Rutherford Dust” qualities and rich Cabernet Sauvignon character.

Winemaking Notes

The 2019 Amici Morisoli Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect example of the power and elegance that Rutherford wines are known for. Its nose is complex, with notes of bing cherry, cranberry, violet and a beautiful herbal quality, while the palate is rich and sweet, with flavors of black licorice, plum sauce and spices. The polished tannins add structure and depth throughout the long, savory finish.
