2017 Morgan 'Twelve Clones' SLH Pinot Noir
This special wine demonstrates the power and finesse of Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. It 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.
Tasting Panel - "Bright peach nose with a smooth texture; juicy with tangy cherries and vivacious acidity; long, balanced, and totally delicious."
Wine Enthusiast - "Snappy raspberry and sweet hibiscus aromas are layered with dewy herbs on the fresh nose of this bottling. The palate is both high toned and fruity, with fresh flavors of raspberry, dried rose petal and Earl Grey tea riding on zippy acidity"
Wilfred Wong - "The Morgan Twelve Clones Pinot Noir is one of top and most dependable wine on the California wine scene. The 2017 vintage is as good as I remembered. This wine is light and bright on its feet while exhibiting beautiful elevation on the palate. Its aromas and flavors of jazzy and racy red fruits should pair well with a slowly-roast chicken."
