"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Coeur de Vallée (also from Oakville) is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Cabernet Franc. Projected aromatics of cedarwood, black currants, ink, espresso roast, spice box, and chocolate are followed by an opulent, fleshy, full-bodied red that is slightly more evolved and accessible than the Passionement. It should evolve for 20-25 years.
This is a brilliant portfolio of wines from Frenchman Luc Morlet. Production for these cuvees ranges from a low of 75 cases for several of the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, to a high of 660 cases for the Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc/Muscadelle blend called La Proportion Dorée. Only indigenous yeasts are used in the fermentations as well as 100% French oak barrels, there is no fining or filtration, and all the wines are made with a hand-crafted zeal for high quality. The 2007 and 2008 Chardonnays would make a tremendous comparative tasting to decide which vintage turned out better. In most cases, 2007 gets the nod, but at this estate, it's pretty much a dead heat. I suspect the only way to secure any of the Morlet Family Vineyards' wines is to get on their mailing list."

"Deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of dark berries, graphite and flowers. Juicy and high-pitched in the mouth, with lovely floral lift (from the cabernet franc?) to the redcurrant, tobacco leaf and spice flavors. This too boasts a lovely silky texture but has gone into a shell since I tasted it last year from barrel. Very young and in need of patience." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
"Ripe and fleshy, with supple plum, blackberry and wild berry fruit that's pure, full-bodied, complex and layered, elegant and well-balanced, ending with an enticing berry-laced aftertaste. Drink now through 2017. 250 cases made." Wine Spectator
