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.

The background of Clone 828 is quite unclear- some say it originated from La Tâche in Burgundy, some say it’s a Dijon clone, and some say it’s neither. What’s certain about our 828 is that it’s a “pinot droît” clone, meaning that its shoots stand upright, as opposed to falling over if not hedged and trellised like many other pinot clones. It puts out a consistently healthy crop, ripens late, retains acidity well, and produces a medium colored, elegant pinot noir.

The 2022 Double L Pinot Noir Clone 828 is bright and energetic, with aromas of cherry cola, baking spices, and blackberry are supported on the palate by toasted vanilla and black fruits. This wine features a medium body with lithe tannins - an exquisite match for duck confit and grilled salmon.
