Morgan's Double L Vineyard is a legendary vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands that has been a standard bearer for quality Pinot Noir produced in the region. This particular vintages shows expressions of cherry, tea and spice derived from French Oak. Bramble berry and a touch of tobacco follow on the palate. Enveloped in bracing acidity, this one is a stunner!
Another head-turner is the 2016 Pinot Noir Double L, which was also destemmed and spent ten months in 50% new oak. It’s a tight, vibrant, youthful effort offering medium-bodied notes of blackberry and black cherry fruits intermixed with plenty of spice, scorched earth, and background oak. With beautiful purity, terrific balance, and again, a vibrant texture, it will be better with a year of bottle age and keep for upwards of a decade.
