Product Overview

The 2008 vintage of Mormoreto shows a luminous ruby red, deep and near-opaque, with purplish highlights at the rim. The nose, characteristically heady and insistent, opens to emphatic impressions of wild red berry fruit and spice, initially a complex mosaic of wild blackberry, blueberry, and dark cherry, plus dried plum and dates, further enriched with subtle notes of sweet violets and sweetbriar. These aromas are lifted by spicier notes of vanilla, cocoa powder, and roast espresso, interleaved with pungent nuances of balsam and chlorophyll. Fine-grained, silky tannins, already well inserted into the structure, contribute to the ultra-smooth mouthfeel and overall sensation of warmth, while its vibrant acidity adds to the exquisite balance of all of its components. The almost-endless finish is laced with tasty, aromatic fruit. A terrific patner with any long-cooked meat dish, such as marinades, pot roasts, and stews. Delicious with aged cheeses. Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot
