Winemaker Notes

The wine was fermented in open top tanks and received manual punch-downs. This enabled good extraction and structure development with pleasant tannins. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to French oak barrels. The 15% new oak gives the wine subtle spice and vanilla characters without overpowering the elegant fruit profile.

This Rhone-style blend has a rich ruby red color, highlighted with purple edges. Rasberry jam, cedar, and fig paste aromas jump out of the glass. The wine is medium-bodied with soft tannins, offering a mouthful of brambleberry and black cherry. Its weight and balance make it a perfect pairing with anything off the grill.

Blend: 52% Syrah, 44% Grenache, 4% Tempranillo

Lots of peppers and spices with dark berries, chocolate and hints of meat. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. A fun blend of syrah, grenache, and tempranillo. Drink now. Screw cap.

Wine Enthusiast
This blend of 52% Syrah, 44% Grenache and 4% Tempranillo is always one of the best price point bets in the region. Savory aromas of pomegranate, boysenberry, tar, charred meat and dried thyme lead into a palate layered in purple flowers, marjoram and dark-berry fruit.

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.

A geographic and climatic paradise for grape vines, Monterey is a part of the greater Central Coast AVA and contains within it five smaller sub-appellations, including Arroyo Seco, San Lucas, San Bernabe, Hames Valley and the famous Santa Lucia Highlands. The climate is relatively warm but tempered by cool, coastal winds, allowing the regions in Monterey County an exceptionally long growing season. Bud break often happens two weeks sooner and harvest tends to be two weeks later compared to other surrounding regions.

Monterey’s coastal side, where the cooling ocean fog allows grapes to develop a perfect sugar-acid balance, excels in the production of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling. Warmer, inland subzones are home to fleshy, concentrated and full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel.

Chardonnay, covering about 40% of vineyard acreage, is the most widely planted grape in all of Monterey County.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
