Morgan Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Twelve Clones 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Leather, toast, minerals and vanilla, with cherry-berry, rose petal, cola, dried herbs, and some spicy/earthy notes, in a balanced and integrated style. Medium-bodied and broadly structured on the palate. The Santa Lucia Highlands typically produces wines of large-scale ripe fruit and a structured elegance. This cool vintage and the Morgan winemaking team created a wine with finely detailed fruit and a graceful style.

Luscious California Pinot. Lush, complex bouquet. Rich fruit, cherries, and a tight tannic finish. One of the best domestic pinots i've had. Price is right - around $25 at Costco. Great value.

Kind of on the light side, but it shows the Highlands of crispness, elegance, dryness and varietal purity. With its thinned-down cherry, cola and pomegranate flavors, it lets you put a Morgan Pinot Noir on your table for less than any of its other bottlings.

Bright medium red. Wild strawberry and raspberry on the nose, with musky notes of rose and herbs adding complexity. A juicy but firm midweight that offers sweet red fruit flavors and a dusting of fine-grained tannins. Finishes with good grip and length but a slightly dry edge. More succulence would have driven my score higher.

The first of Morganandrsquo;s andrsquo;07 Pinots to be released, this is a full-bodied wine that needs some time in the bottle to mature. Not a lot, maybe a year or two, will allow the cherry, currant, mocha and cedar flavors to integrate with the oak and tannins.

Aromas of smoky raspberry, dill, sage and cedar carry over to the palate, where they're deep, concentrated, focused and persistent. The tannins are ripe and firm, ending with a mix of cedar and dusty berry. Drink now through 2011.

Mid-red. Spicy raspberry and cherry on the nose, with subtle vanillin oak and baking spices adding complexity. Firm, slightly compact red berry flavors offer youthful snap and good focus, ending with good, tangy persistence. I like the balance and subtlety of this bottling today.
