99 Point winemaker does it again!

Cabaud

Luc Morlet has been on a roll as of late, and this latest venture “Cabaud” is just one of the many accolades this great winemaker can add to his portfolio.  Luc who was born in France, but is known for his success at Peter Michael Newton, Staglin, Carte Blanche, Vineyard 7 & 8, his own Morlet label and of course the Cabaud Wines.

Passionate for both the expression of the various California terroirs, as well as the continuous pursuit of the ultimate quality, Luc calls his winemaking philosophy “neo-classical laissez-faire without compromise.” His is a non-interventionist winemaking style driven by an ongoing search for quality improvement. With over two decades of vintages under his belt (he worked 9 years in France, before coming to California), and with his own zest for innovation, Luc uses century old principles and classic Burgundy and Bordeaux methods, while adapting to California’s natural conditions

“Mon Hommage” translates to “My Tribute” and that is what the Cabauds want to share with us. Great wine, great land, great winemaker (Luc Morlet) and the love for the Napa Valley and Saint Helena!

This wine offers a very intense aromatic boost of black cherries and blueberries with a whiff of white tobacco on the nose.  Fleshy and unctuous flavors of red and black stone fruit roll over a perfectly balanced body.  Hints of crème de cassis and a touch toasty vanilla intermingle gorgeously on this mid-palate of this refined giant!  The “finale” offers up a long lingering finish with soft and silky tannins.
