Product Overview

The 2016 Morgan Twelve Clones Pint Noir is drawn from the finest vineyards of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation and demonstrates the power and finesse of Pinot Noir from this prized appellation. The wine displays aromas of dark cherry, saddlewood, and sweet herbs. Flavors of wild cherry are complemented by notes of toasted oak and raspberry. Perfectly poised with fresh acidity, this wine is incredibly food-versatile. It is a wonderful accompaniment to roast chicken and grilled salmon, as well as almost any duck, beef or lamb preparation.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Pinot Noir
Appellation: Santa Lucia Highlands AVA
Aging: 10 months in 100 percent French oak, 38 percent new

91 Points - Vinous
"Brilliant red. Spice-accented raspberry and cherry accents along with hints of woodsmoke cola and Asian spices. Silky and energetic on the palate offering appealingly sweet red berry and floral pastille flavors that deepen slowly as the wine opens up. Fine-grained tannins lend shape to an impressively long mineral- and spice-laced finish that shows excellent clarity and repeating florality." -JR, Oct/2018

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"A graceful, supple expression of Pinot Noir, with fleshy tannins and a core of juicy plum and berry flavors shaded by cedar, anise and spice notes, ending clean and pure. Drink now through 2024. 11,055 cases made. " -JL, 8/31/18
