2021 Double L Syrah
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 the fermentation in open top tanks with 17% whole clusters. After fermentation, the wine was transferred into 25% new French oak for ten months of aging.
This wine shows inky purple hues in the glass. Attractive aromas of blackberries, crushed violets, graphite, and dark chocolate are supported by flavors of black fruit and savory herbs. The rich fruit is balanced by bright acidity and elegant tannins – displaying classic cool-climate syrah character.
