  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($65) Full ruby-red. Cherry, currant, plum and currant leaf on the nose; very cabernet. Then juicy, bright and penetrating, with intense currant, licorice and herbal flavors. Brisk acids and floral lift contribute to the impression of inner-mouth energy. Finishes with very firm tannins that avoid dryness.

    Deeper, broader, richer and sexier is the plump, opulent 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Morisoli Vineyard. Broad, round notes of black currants, licorice, incense and spice box emerge from this full-bodied, delicious Cabernet. It should be even better in 4-5 years and last for 10-15 thereafter.

  • Ray and Nancy Coursen founded Elyse Winery in 1987 with their first production of Morisoli Vineyard Zinfandel. They continued to purchase grapes until 1997 when they bought a small winery on Hoffman Lane. After initially focusing on Zinfandel, the winery expanded into Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah and more recently Coursen has made small quantities of Chardonnay, a Cal-Ital blend called Nero Misto, a Chenin Blanc, Rose, and a Grenache called Le Corbeau. The winery has two labels, Elyse and Jacob Franklin, named after their children. The Jacob Franklin label was started in 1998, featuring a low-yield Petite Sirah, a Bordeaux blend called #60 Mon Chou and a Hoffman Lane Cabernet.
