Morgan Pinot Noir Twelve Clones Santa Lucia Highlands 2007
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.
Morgan Winery is family owned and operated since 1982 and is committed to making refined wines from the finest Monterey and Santa Lucia Highlands Vineyards. Morgan Winery's Double L Vineyard is currently the only certified organically farmed vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
One of my favorite Pinot's under $30. Dark, plummy fruit with hints of earth and leather, along with a slight cinnamon spice at the end. I feel that the chilly but sunny coastal region between the Santa Lucia Highlands down to northern Santa Barbara county produce the best Pinot Noir on the planet ( some may disagree) and this one is a good example for the moderately priced (under $30) category. If you like Pinot, and are a fan of the movie "Sideways", you won't be disappointed. :)
