Morgan Twelve Clones Pinot Noir 2014
|Appellation||Santa Lucia Highlands|
Wine EnthusiastLight raspberry, cranberry, pomegranate and strawberry fruit tones greet the nose on this bottling. The aromas then offer a brick-like minerality bolstered by chiseled slate and wet river stones. Flavors are also rocky and rusty, with lots of crushed gravel and turned earth giving complexity to the cran-pomegranate fruit.
VinousBrilliant red. Zesty, spice-accented red berries and fresh flowers on the fragrant nose and in the mouth. Juicy and tightly focused; a hint of allspice appears as the wine opens up. Closes on a clean, spicy note, offering energetic cut and silky tannins that sneak in slowly.
Wine SpectatorBoasting wonderful aromatics of fresh, toasty oak leading to a vibrant core of raspberry and blackberry notes, with lots of spice and floral scents, this has a deft balance and a long, clean finish. Drink now. 14,076 cases made.
