| 135 MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS V ISIT u S AT MORRELLWINE .c OM cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) N e W W o R l D : C A l IF o RNIA W hile many collectors think first of their Pinot Noir, here at m orrell, we believe it's the Cabernet Sauvignon that continues to set m ount e den apart from their neighbors. What makes the m ount e den Cabernet so special is a combination of terroir and traditions. The vineyards are located high up in the Santa Cruz m ountains, only 15 miles from the Pacific o cean and above the fog line. The vines grow in poor soils of Franciscan shale and enjoy sunny, long days, which are moderated by cooling influences of the ocean. The wine is aged in barrel for two years, then in bottle until its late release. The 2013 is a throwback mountain fruit Cabernet that is already gorgeous today, but will also enjoy a long and beautiful evolution in the cellar. It's also an amazing value when compared not only to Santa Cruz, but Sonoma and Napa as well. ✦ Mount e den e state Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 VM 94+ » $72 "...the 2013 is positively striking today, with compelling inner sweetness, tons of perfume and exceptional balance." Antonio Galloni (1753310) d e F i N i NG Ba L a NC e a N d Va L ue Jeffrey Patterson of Mount e den inspired a generation of winemakers to explore this rocky terrain–and today we are bombarded by new projects from the region. However, through it all, Mount e den maintains its status as one of the best.
