Morgan Twelve Clones Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This special wine demonstrates the power and finesse of Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. It displays aromas of plum, dark chocolate and cola. Flavors of blackberry and cherry are complemented by notes of leather and black tea. Perfectly poised fruit/acid balance make this incredibly food-versatile. It is a wonderful accompaniment to roast chicken and grilled salmon, as well as almost any duck, beef or lamb preparation.

Morgan Twelve Clones Pinot Noir is well-crafted, tight and structured, with firm, gripping tannins keeping the zesty, tart wild berry, blackberry and date-nut bread flavors in check.

Fresh and vibrant, with zesty wild berry and blueberry fruit that's pure and easy-drinking, with a modest but persistent finish. Drink now through 2019.

Starting off the reds, the 2011 Pinot Noir Twelve Clones is made in a deep, darker style with pretty fruit and texture, medium-bodied richness and an upfront profile. It should drink nicely for 3–4 years. Drink now–2017.
