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.
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. :)
