With more than 30 years of experience, Dan Lee and the Morgan label have been synonymous with artisan, vineyard-centric wines from the Santa Lucia Highlands and Monterey. The Double L Vineyard’s location in the northern end of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA is widely regarded as one of the best spots for growing world-class Pinot Noir in California. Planted on east facing terraces overlooking the Salinas River Valley, the north-south vineyard row orientation provides optimum sun exposure and access to the strong afternoon breezes. The winds moderate the afternoon temperature, thickening the grape skins and concentrating flavors. The vineyard has been Certified Organic since 2002, making it the first SLH vineyard to be achieve both organic and sustainable certifications.
The grapes for this wine were hand picked and sorted in the vineyard, then were sorted a second time at the winery before being destemmed. Whole berry fermentation started with native yeasts in small, open top tanks. Supple texture and soft tannins are the result of daily manual punch downs. After fermentation, the wine was transferred into a combination of 55% new oak, along with one and two year-old barrels.
Morgan’s Double L Pinot Noir presents aromas of blackberry, cola, and smoky oak with hints of leather and cedar. Flavors of black cherry and strawberry are backed by a deft touch of toasty oak and structuring tannins. An exquisite match for duck confit, lamb shank, and prime rib.
