The Morey family has been involved in winemaking and grape-growing for several centuries, both in Europe and here in the United States. Our latest vintage, the 2002 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, is being brought to you by the new generation of the Moreys which enjoys both the wisdom of our ancestors and the energy of our youth. We have been making wine here in California for well over one decade and have enjoyed sharing it with our friends and family. Now that it is commercially available, we can share this wine with our new friends!
Our 2002 vintage boasts only 199 cases which means that we continue our tradition of producing low volume, high quality wines, and plan on keeping this label at that level. This wine was made to become a classic and last for many years. While we are steadfastly working on our next releases, we understand that youâ€”our friendâ€”will trust us to continue producing wines of at least the same quality and, hopefully, better. Again, we are sure that you will not be disappointed.
We have committed ourselves to making the Morey name synonymous with fine quality and, to be honest, somewhat rare wines. We do not plan on expanding to the level of producing tens of thousands of cases. All of our wines are aged at least 24 months in barrels in order to ensure the best interaction between the wine and the oak, and to obtain a silky, complex, and dense wine. Maintaining these barrelsâ€”tasting the wines weekly, topping them off, racking from one to anotherâ€”is nothing less than a labor of love. If you knew how much manual labor is involved in creating such great wines, you would understand how a winemaker learns to love his (or her!) wines. Now you understand how we cannot increase production without sacrificing the love that goes into these wines. And the Moreys are not known for sacrificing quality! And, yes, we put up a pretty good fight for what we believe is right, fair, and honest, as our Irish and Scottish ancestors believed.
We always look forward to hearing from our friends. Feel free to drop us a line or give us a call and tell us what you think of our wine or order some!
