“Cult Pinot fans rejoice! This Pinot Noir neighbors the Marcassin vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, and it the breathtaking quality shines through after a few years of bottle age. Ripe boysenberry, red cherry and raspberry coulis are woven seamlessly with spicy ginger, sarsaparilla, and vanilla.  Rich and mouth-filling, red and black fruits and black tea tannins lead to a finish that lasts minutes.  Secure up as much as you can and enjoy this distinguished red through 2025.” - 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.”
