Morgan Twelve Clones Pinot Noir 2014


SKU 10042


This special wine demonstrates the power and finesse of Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. It displays aromas of dried cherry, brown sugar, cedar, and dry herbs. Flavors of pomegranate are complemented by notes of dates and mineral. Perfectly poised fruit/acid balance make this wine incredibly food-versatile. It is a wonderful accompaniment to roast chicken and grilled salmon, as well as almost any duck, beef or lamb preparation.

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 AdvocateA wine that's brought up in 40% new oak and is from 60-70% estate fruit (it's all from the Santa Lucia Highlands), the 2014 Pinot Noir Twelve Clones is a charming and graceful Pinot Noir that has plenty of classic red and black fruits, spice and even a touch of pepper in its medium-bodied, ready to go style. It's well made, has plenty to like, and readers looking for a good value to drink over the coming coming 3-4 years could do a lot worse.
