Tasting Notes
This special wine demonstrates the power and finesse of Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. It displays aromas of forest floor, sweet spice, raspberry, and bacon fat. Flavors of dark cherry are complemented by notes of toasted oak and candied strawberry. 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.

Vineyards
The “Twelve Clones” Pinot Noir is drawn from the finest vineyards of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation, including Morgan’s own organically farmed “Double L” estate - which, in the 2015 vintage, accounted for 36% of the final blend. The “Twelve Clones” designation denotes the original, diverse Pinot plantings at the Double L. The vines here capture the warm morning sunshine from their elevated, east facing terraces overlooking the Salinas River Valley. Strong afternoon winds and evening fog from the nearby Monterey Bay create a cool Region I type climate. The resulting long growing season allows for gentle ripening, creating intense flavors with balanced acidity.

Winemaking

The grapes were picked and then hand-sorted in the vineyard. Upon arriving at the winery, grapes where sorted a second time before being destemmed. Whole berry fermentation was started using native yeasts in small, open top tanks. Two times each day the cap was gently punched down by hand. After fermentation, the wine was transferred into a combination of 30% new, one and two year-old French cooperage. The wine aged for almost a year before being bottled.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Fresh Key lime aromas meet with touches of guava, plumeria and lemongrass on the steely nose of this bottling. There's a great sizzle of acidity to the sip, leaning a bit more toward Sauvignon Blanc than Chardonnay, with flavors of guava gum, green papaya, lime and grass." - Matt Kettmann (2/1/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage):
"The 2015 Chardonnay Estate opens with an apricot, honeydew melon and green guava-scented nose with hints of allspice, ginger and brioche. Medium to full-bodied, it has a pleasant suggestion of oiliness to the texture with plenty of vivacity and good length." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (31st Oct 2017)

91 Points - Robert Parker:
"A ripe, fruit loaded effort that gives up tons of black fruits, ground herbs, spice and licorice, the 2013 Pinot Noir Fe Ciega Vineyard (destemmed and aged 14 months in 38% new French oak) is medium-bodied, supple, rounded and a touch chunky on the palate. It has some oak to integrate, yet it’s nicely concentrated and textured, and has plenty to like. It should be better in a year or so and keep through 2023."

92 Points - Vinous Media:
"Light bright gold. Fresh orange, nectarine and melon scents are complemented by floral and dusty mineral notes. Smooth and expansive on the palate, offering poached pear and peach nectar flavors that pick up a subtle honeyed quality as the wine opens up. Lush and supple in style, delivering strong closing thrust and lingering hints of buttered toast and candied citrus zest." - Josh Raynolds (Oct 2016)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Lightly toasted almond, melted butter, chalk and Meyer lemon scents are delicately woven together in this expressive yet restrained bottling. There is well dispersed acidic energy throughout the palate, where smoked lemon flavors lead into sea salt and white flower notes on the finish." - Matt Kettmann (5/1/2017)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow Vineyard delivers intense grapefruit, lemon curd and white peach notes with hints of cedar, nutmeg, fresh ginger and marzipan with a waft of beeswax. The medium-bodied palate delivers on flavors, with bags of citrus and spice characters, supported by a creamy texture and just enough freshness, finishing long." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (29th Sep 2017)

92-94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage):
"Like with the Garys' release, the yields from Rosella's Vineyard were down upwards of 55%. The 2015 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with loads of red and black fruits, crushed violets, spice and floral aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, elegant, yet with serious intensity, it shows the slightly fresher, more elegant style of the vineyard and will keep for a decade." - Jeb Dunnuck (28th Sep 2016)
