2021 Double L Pinot Noir (Clone Pommard 5)
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.
Pommard 5 (P5) is a widely planted pinot noir clone in cool climates like the Santa Lucia Highlands. It ripens fairly late in the season, with high yields if not carefully managed. Handled properly, it makes wines of structure and depth.
The 2021 Double L Pinot Noir Pommard 5 is rich yet energetic. Aromas of black cherry, rose petal, and espresso bean are supported on the palate by bright red and black fruits, with a hint of sandalwood and baking spices. This wine features a medium body and elegant tannins — an exquisite match for duck confit or prime rib.
