Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Morisoli Vineyard (96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot) reveals an inky/purple color along with a youthful blueberry, raspberry and black currant-scented nose intermixed with charcoal, vanillin, forest floor and ink notes. This impressively constituted, full-bodied, extremely youthful 2002 will benefit from another 3-5 years of cellaring. It will keep for 15 or more years thereafter.

The wine is a saturated purple/black in color, displaying a nice layering of blackberry, spice, graphite, and earth in the nose. On the palate, I find a beautifully focused wine with intense flavors of tarry black fruit, plum, cherry, and cassis, and an overall vibrant feel. This wine needs to be decanted for approximately 2 hours before drinking.

About This Producer

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.
