Product Description

The Morisoli Vineyard is located between Manley and Niebaum Lanes in Rutherford, 3/4 of a mile west of Highway 29 at the base of Mount St. John. Its increased elevation and gravelly soil yield a wine of great structure and abundant fruit flavors. 2013 vintage – 87% Zinfandel, 13% combination of Alicante Bouschet, Durif, Carignane, Grand Noir, Muscat Hamburg, Négrette, Syrah, and Valdiguié, or TLTL (Too Long To List). 10-1/2 months in American oak (20% new). Elyse has been making Zinfandel from the Morisoli Vineyard since 1986, and have been the only producer working with these grapes since 1988. The old field-blend vines, Rutherford Bench terroir, and traditional farming practices always create a truly distinctive style of Zinfandel. The 2013 Morisoli Zinfandel is aromatically teasing with scents of crushed berries, violets, bacon and cinnamon. It is lush all the way across the palate with bright but deep flavors of raspberry, blackberry and cassis with a creamy texture and ripe, leathery sweet tannins. This wine shows great depth and a long pleasing finish.
