aMaurice Morris Artist Series Columbia Valley 2015
93+ points Wine Advocate: "A blend of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Artist Series Morris Blend reproduces on its label an oil painting by the American Abstract Impressionist painter Carl Morris. The wine offers up attractive aromas of crushed cassis, pencil shavings and toasted gingerbread, followed by a medium to full-bodied, velvety palate with a deep core of savory fruit and youthfully chewy structuring tannins. The finish is long and nicely delineated. This was my favorite of these offerings from àMaurice Cellars, and I'd expect it to reach its peak in the next decade."
Gorgeous Washington red wine. What we particularly love about the Artist Series blends, and the Morris especially, is their purity of fruit and essence of balance, not covered up by excessive oak or tannin, or anything. Reminiscent of the Andrew Will style, we can think of no higher compliment. Morris is packed and dense, showing midnight-dark fruits buoyed by a lovely freshness. Velvety-rich already with a touch of youthful grip, a quick decant will give you art in a glass. - Marcus and Andy
