(100% cabernet sauvignon; made from the best barrels from three Oakville vineyards): Good bright, deep red. Cassis, graphite, cedar, licorice, tobacco and flowers on the nose. Seamless and fine-grained, with lovely precision and lift to the dark berry and violet flavors. Impressively complex and intense wine with a light touch (especially for its 3.95 pH). Finishes with terrific sappy perfume and a tight tannic spine for extended aging.

Morlet's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnement offers up sweet red cherries, flowers, licorice and sweet spices that all meld together in this subtle, delicate wine. A lovely center of minerality gives the wine its poise. Passionnement is a selection of Morlet's best barrels from fruit sourced in Oakville (To Kalon, Missouri Hopper) and Knights Valley, but I often feel that something is lost in that selection process. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

purely domestic wine report | 100

100CS from Oakville and fermented in 600L puncheons is essentially, the no-holds-barred, Ode to Jodie, Luc's wife. Extraordinary wine at grand apogee, it could have been called anything I suppose, but the truth is always underneath the cork, a devotion, to love, to life, and to craft on however many levels you may want to imagine. The sumptuously gorgeous parfum of ancient, seductively scented heirloom stone fruits and plump, vibrant sour/sweet berry assemblage make me want to squirm in my seat. This wine is sooo locked in, it's un-nerving, and that's before I tasted it. The palate doesn't leave anything to chance; perfect pure blackberry, currant, java and faint curry are of impeccable weight, dimension and spectrum. I'm left grasping for superlatives.
