Morgan Double L Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014
|Appellation||Santa Lucia Highlands|
Wine EnthusiastThe waves of aromas on this bottling are quite intriguing, starting with meat then moving to black olive and tobacco. It finally settles into dense rose petals, purple flowers, cinnamon, dark hibiscus and black plum. The sip focuses on minerality, with chipped slate showing first, then goes toward juniper and pine, all against a black raspberry and pomegranate backdrop.
Wine AdvocateComing all from estate fruit (which is located in the northern part of the appellation), the 2014 Pinot Noir Double L Vineyard is a beautiful wine well worth readers' attention. Ripe red and black fruits, underbrush, spice (clove, allspice) and hints of crushed rocks all emerge from this medium-bodied, silky and seamless Pinot Noir that has terrific vibrancy and purity. It will easily keep through 2024.
