From his nearly six acres of Cabernet Sauvignon planted with Margaux cuttings near Vineyard 29 and Colgin’s Tychson Hill vineyards, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Morlet Estate (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) displays the vintage’s open, opulent, plush personality. With exceptional intensity, plenty of crème de cassis, vanillin, floral and lead pencil notes, this full-bodied 2012 offers low acidity as well as impressive flavors. There are 275 cases of this gorgeous red. It should drink well for 15-20 years. (RP)
Fresh acidities and singing black fruits here, this has a beautiful mixture of power and elegance from 5th generation French winemaker Luc Morlet. It’s intense in colour at 7 years old, with blueberry fruits to the fore. Intense and creamy - clearly one for long ageing but with enough seductive notes and floral aromatics that it can be drunk now after a good few hours in a carafe. The fruit comes from three sites in Knights Valley, St Helena and Andy Beckstoffer's To Kalon. Unfiltered and natural yeasts, 100% new oak. An estate Morlet created with his American wife Jodie in 2006, but on the site of a former winery that didn't survive Prohibition. (JA)
The 2012 Morlet Estate is a gorgeous, racy wine that captures the exuberance of the vintage. Rose petal, spice and dark raspberry jam are some of the notes that flesh out. The 2012 is bold, ripe and forward, yet it also retains striking freshness and nuance throughout. A closing blast of red cherry jam and pomegranate round out the finish. This modern, voluptuous St. Helena Cabernet will drink well for another 15-20 years. (AG)
