    Description

    Morlet Family Cabernet Franc 2012
    Force de la Nature
    Bottle (9)


    "The nearly perfect Cabernet Franc Force de la Nature comes from a parcel of Cabernet Franc vines planted on the gravelly bench of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard. This cuvée is only produced in great vintages, which, of course, the 2012 and 2013 are. As with all of Luc Morlet’s wines, there are no acid adjustments, no enzymes and no manipulation. The inky/blue/purple-colored, aromatic 2012 Cabernet Franc Force de la Nature boasts a floral, full-bodied, layered mouthfeel, fabulous intensity and notes of wet rocks, spring flowers, forest floor, blueberries and black raspberries. It is a tour de force as well as a force de la nature from the Oakville Corridor. Consume it over the next 10-20 years." (98 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #215, Oct. 2014)
