2022 Double L Pinot Noir (Dijon Clones)
Conscientiously farmed since the original plantings in 1997, today Morgan’s Double L Estate Vineyard is the only certified organic vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Located at the northern end of the AVA, the vineyard’s north-south row orientation provides optimal wind and sun exposure.
Dijon clones, originally selected by the University of Dijon in Burgundy, became popular in the 1990s and 2000s due to their early ripening, disease resistance, and balanced yields. In general, our clone 667 tends to show lots of dark fruit, while 777 tends to be a bit redder in fruit tone. Both have lots of spice, with beautiful aromatics and texture.
The 2022 Double L Pinot Noir Dijon Clones is bright and energetic. Aromas of bing cherry, rose petal, and forest floor are supported on the palate by spicy red fruits and sweet herbs. This wine features a medium body with lithe tannins — an exquisite match for duck confit or grilled salmon.
