About This Wine:

Tasting Notes
This special wine demonstrates the power and finesse of Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. It displays aromas of forest floor, sweet spice, raspberry, and bacon fat. Flavors of dark cherry are complemented by notes of toasted oak and candied strawberry. Perfectly poised fruit/acid balance make this wine incredibly food-versatile. It is a wonderful accompaniment to roast chicken and grilled salmon, as well as almost any duck, beef or lamb preparation.

Vineyards
The “Twelve Clones” Pinot Noir is drawn from the finest vineyards of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation, including Morgan’s own organically farmed “Double L” estate - which, in the 2015 vintage, accounted for 36% of the final blend. The “Twelve Clones” designation denotes the original, diverse Pinot plantings at the Double L. The vines here capture the warm morning sunshine from their elevated, east facing terraces overlooking the Salinas River Valley. Strong afternoon winds and evening fog from the nearby Monterey Bay create a cool Region I type climate. The resulting long growing season allows for gentle ripening, creating intense flavors with balanced acidity.

Winemaking
The grapes were picked and then hand-sorted in the vineyard. Upon arriving at the winery, grapes where sorted a second time before being destemmed. Whole berry fermentation was started using native yeasts in small, open top tanks. Two times each day the cap was gently punched down by hand. After fermentation, the wine was transferred into a combination of 30% new, one and two year-old French cooperage. The wine aged for almost a year before being bottled.
