The Twelve Clones Pinot Noir is drawn from the finest vineyards of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation, including Morgan’s organic Double L estate — which, in the 2019 vintage, accounted for 67% of the final blend. The Twelve Clones designation denotes the original, diverse pinot plantings at the Double L. Cloudy mornings, mid-day sunshine with strong winds, and evening fog create a cool Region I type climate. The long growing season allows for gentle ripening, creating intense flavors with balanced acidity.

The 2019 Twelve Clones demonstrates the finesse typical of pinot noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. It displays aromas of black cherry, cedar, and sweet baking spices. Flavors of red and black fruit are complemented with a hint of sassafrass. Perfectly poised, this medium bodied wine is light on its feet with weightless tannins and crisp acidity. A wonderful accompaniment to roasted chicken and grilled salmon, as well as almost any duck, beef, or lamb preparation.

"Medium ruby color, spiced cherry nose, juicy, fresh, crisp and delicious, balanced and tangy with excellent length and bright acidity." - Anthony Dias Blue, April 2021

"Bright aromas of pomegranate, orange peel, pepper and sea salt show on the nose of this clonal combination. Zesty, energetic flavors of lemon and orange zest meet with a tart and snappy red-currant flavor on the palate, with oregano and cardamom adding complexity toward the finish." - Matt Kettmann, October 2021

93 Points
"...Displaying translucent ruby in the glass, the impressive nose pops with fresh aromas of pomegranate, red raspberry, dried mint and red flower petals. Delivering racy acidity on the palate, followed by lengthy fruit flavors of wild strawberry, tangerine peel, olive oil and dried herbs. Tannins are already integrated in this delicious wine that is ready to drink now but will last for another 5 years or more."  - Jeremy Young, August 2021




92 Points
“Very nicely perfumed with scents of black cherry, strawberry, spice, and savory herbs. Light to mid-weight in style with a delicious core of giving strawberry, raspberry, and cherry flavors. Silky in the mouth, with appealing fitness, minimal tannins, and a compliment of barrel magic. Elegant and giving and ideal as a daily drinker.” - Rusty Gaftney, May 2021
