Morlet Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnement 2012
VM95: Black cherry, dark spice, chocolate, leather, menthol and licorice are pushed forward in the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionement. Dark, sumptuous and beautifully expressive in the modern style of Napa Valley Cabernet, the Passionement offers notable depth and raciness throughout. Passionement is a blend of fruit from Andy Beckstoffer's To Kalon and Missouri Hopper vineyards.
WA94: The full-bodied 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnément, which comes from the Oakville Bench, was aged in new oak puncheons. There are 250 cases of this Pauillac-like offering. It possesses notes of Christmas fruitcake, spice box, vanillin and black fruits in its opulent, open-knit personality. Drink 2018-2035.
