Description

WC 91

"Medium ruby red showing ripe dark cherry fruit, smoke, and undergrowth on the nose. Very flavorful palate of spicy dark red fruit with strong earth and vanilla spice notes. Has a long, flavorful finish, again with the fruit shining through and just a touch of cola spice. Excellent intensity of flavor and superbly balanced." (Nov. 2009) An appellation blend from the Santa Lucia Highlands, this Pinot Noir has a heavy dose of fruit (44%) from the organic Double L Vineyard. Aromas of leather and minerals with hints of cherry cola, raspberry, lavender and earth tones really get Pinot-lovers fired up. The complex bouquet translates seamlessly to the palate, which has a medium frame and the lovely acidity of a cool vintage. According to Wine Enthusiast: "The first of Morgan's '07 Pinots to be released, this is a full-bodied wine that needs some time in the botle 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." (09/09) And from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "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." International Wine Cellar
