Elyse caberetsauvignon morisoli

Cabernet Sauvignon, Holbrook Mitchell Vineyard 2013

Elyse Winery

Deep, dark ruby colored with explosive aromatics of blackberry, mulberry, allspice, and kirsch. The palate is richly textured with big fruit flavors of wild currant, cassis, and blackberry pie along with notes of cola, savory herbs, licorice, and cardamom. This wine is full-bodied with beautifully ripe fruit and firm tannins that lead to a long and pleasing finish.

Reviews

  • "94 points. From a vineyard in the western hills of the appellation, this wine shows lovely cool-climate characteristics without skimping on body or ripeness, expressing balance and grace. Tightly wound, it leans savory and firm, with clove, tobacco, black licorice and tomato leaf flavors and big tannins that call for further ageing. Enjoy 2023–2033." (Wine Enthusiast)
