Winemaker's Notes

The 2002 Tierra Mar shows a deeply saturated purple-red color. On the nose, the classic blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry fruit are noted along with vanilla, white pepper and a mineral-driven pencil lead component. The tannins are soft and ripe, integrated with the fruit and the mineral notes. The wine is rich, full-bodied and balanced, while accurately expressing the noble characters of the grape.

Learn About Morgan

The Lee family started Morgan in 1982. Located in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey, the winery receives grapes from the family's organic vineyard, the Double L Vineyard, and a few select neighbors. The Double L is densely planted with 11 clones of Pinot Noir with rows oriented north-south for optimal sun exposure and interception of the cool breezes from the Monterey bay. This cool low yeilding area is becoming known as the "Cote d'Or of California" and produces wonderful Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Morgan also produces Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah from the various microclimates of Monterey.
