Winemaker's Notes

Bright garnet color, with clarity not often associated with unfiltered wines. On the nose, aromas of plum pits, clove and other spices, and a touch of toasty vanilla enhance the typical Pinot Noir cherry notes. On the palate, a well-focused beam of plum-spice flavors is nicely rounded out with toasty oak notes. The finish is long, with supple tannins and well-integrated acidity. We feel the wine is suitable for up to 6 years of ageing in good cellar conditions.

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.
