2021 Double L Pinot Noir
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 grapes were hand picked and sorted in the vineyard, then sorted a second time at the winery. Native and cultured yeasts began fermentation in open top tanks. After fermentation, the wine was transferred into 40% new French oak for 10 months of aging.
The 2021 Double L Pinot Noir is rich yet energetic. Aromas of wild cherry, christmas spice, and rose petal are supported on the palate by black plum, savory spices, and forest floor. This wine features a medium body with elegant tannins — an exquisite match for duck confit or prime rib.
