93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013
(15.2% alcohol; from a St. Helena vineyard just south of Grace; Morlet will be transitioning from 4 x 6 vine spacing to a relatively tight 3-1/2 x 4 and plans to farm the steeper hillside portion with a horse): Good deep ruby. Currant, graphite, coffee and violet on the nose. Suave, fine-grained and pretty, showing lovely floral lift to the densely packed flavors of dark berries and bitter chocolate. In a rather feminine style in its light touch and elegance (these are young vines) but with a brisk suggestion of limestone minerality and building tannins firming the long finish. The Grace clone is planted here.
