92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2014
(made from Morlet's new property on the hillside west of Highway 29, north of St. Helena): Saturated bright ruby-red. Pungent aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice, violet and dusty spices. Juicy, dense and sharply delineated, offering serious intensity to its dark berry, licorice and mineral flavors. Youthfully tight today but the tannins are silky and suave. This fruit was picked at the end of September, before the heavy rains, noted Morlet, who had thinned the crop load to one cluster per shoot. A stunning debut for this bottling.
