“This Pinot Noir has a deep garnet color and intense aromas of blackberry, cherry and raspberry flavors. The richness and complexity are reminiscent of a truly exceptional vintages of Sea Smoke or Kosta Browne, with an array of dazzling notes of raspberry, dark cherry, rhubarb, exotic spices, and a hint of toffee all melded across a velvety smooth texture. This wine will shine tonight after a light decant, but will continue to age gracefully for another 5 years.  Truly extraordinary.” -California Wine Advisors

BACKGROUND
Robert Parker on Morlet: “Run, don’t walk and splurge for the Luc Morlet Wine Express. Morlet, who comes from a family of winemakers in Champagne and consults at the Peter Michael Winery where his brother Nicolas is in charge of the winemaking, has his own operation on Route 29 north of St. Helena. His Napa cuvées were reviewed in Issue #215. His Sonoma offerings are remarkable wines that are about as good as wines made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah can be. Morlet is not only a fabulous winemaking talent, he knows how to bring the French savoir faire of complexity, elegance and precision to the ripe, concentrated, intense fruit of California.”
