2012 MORLET “LES PETITS MORLET” CABERNET SAUVIGNON
You might recognize Luc Morlet as the winemaker responsible for our number one wine last year, which was the 2013 Cabaud. Unless you read our emails, you might NOT be familiar with finding a Luc-Morlet-made-wine for under $100. Luc is one of the world’s greatest winemakers and I would estimate that most of his wines range in the $165-$300/btl range. His story began in France, where he grew up on his family’s vineyard and gained extensive experience making wine in Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne, and Southern France. In 1996 Luc replaced John Kongsgaard as winemaker at Newton Cellars through 2000. In 2001 Luc joined Peter Michael Winery continuing the legacy of Helen Turley and Mark Abuert. Crafting Peter Michael from 2001 through 2005, Luc solidified himself as one of the most talented and accomplished winemakers in the world.
In 2006 Luc and his wife Jodie embarked on with their own label Morlet, crafting wines in limited quantities, sourced from unique vineyards of Napa Valley and Sonoma County. His 2012 Les Petits Morlet Cabernet arose from younger vines grown on many of the properties that Luc works with. Like many great 2012 Cabernets, the aromas are deep and hedonistic, and on the palate the wine is supple, complete and full of complexities. We’re thrilled to have this wine by the glass in our Yountville store and the 2012 is absolutely rocking right now.

Winemaker Notes: "Displaying a very intense bouquet of black currant, candied red and black cherries and mocha, intermixed with hints of blond tobacco leaves and earthy notes of leather and toasted red pepper. This wine possesses youthful, yet sweet tannins and is characterized by its overall richness, suave character and approachability."
