Morgan is an absolute pioneer in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County. Long before Pisoni and Franscioni were household names among wine lovers, Dan Morgan Lee and his wife Donna opened the doors of Morgan in 1982 and never looked back. Today Morgan is recognized as the gold standard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, and a recent tasting of their wines showed us whey – they were nothing short of stunning.
We loved the Double L Syrah for its intensely aromatic black fruit and big bruiting white pepper notes. The palate has violets in the background and supported by dense fruit and leather. You couldn’t get closer to Northern Rhone Valley in France if you tried. The nice thing about California Syrah is that it’s ready to drink now, don’t hold back on popping the cork.
