Light in the glass, this clonal blends pops on the nose with crisp raspberry and cranberry as hints of crushed slate and red rose petal add complexity. The landing on the palate is clean and bright, showing joyously ripe berry flavors but also elegant floral tones deep into the finish. ~M.K.

International Wine Report 93
The 2021 Twelve Clones Pinot Noir from Morgan is made from 12 unique clones of Pinot and is aged for 9 months in 32% new French oak. Earthy and dusty on the nose, it brings notes of blue raspberry, black tea, powdered graphite, dried flower petals, and sweet spice. Gobs of blueberry fruit and bitter herb are on the finish, alongside the bountiful acidity and rounded sweet tannins. ~J.Y.

Morgans Twelve Clones Pinot Noir is always a solid value leader, and typically made to be ready to go right out of the gate. In keeping with the emerging theme of 2021 on the Central Coast, this pulses with energy and tension. Forward red fruit and bright oak toast aromas follow through on the palate, with a silky midpalate and a crisp finish with nice push. ~R.C.
About Morgan Winery
Morgan Winery was founded in 1982 by Dan and Donna Lee,and is committed to making elegant, refined wines from the finest Santa Lucia Highlands and Monterey vineyards.

The winery's own Double L Vineyard is in the northern section of the Santa Lucia Highlands sub-appellation of Monterey. This organically farmed site has 45 acres currently producing fine Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah. Considered to be the "Cote d'Or" of California, these Santa Lucia Highlands hillside vineyards are in a prime location for the production of cool weather varietals. Organic farming of Double L ensures the purest expression of terroir. Notable neighbors include Sleepy Hollow, Mer et Soleil, Rosella's and Garys' vineyards. The first Double L crop was harvested in the fall of 1999.

The wines are currently being made by Gianni Abate, who comes to Morgan Winery from the Robert Mondavi Corp. on the Central Coast. His experiences on the Central Coast have taught him to balance the science and the art of winemaking. He has a tremendous palate, which is necessary to produce world-class wines.

The Winery is located in Salinas, where traditional winemaking techniques, combined with modern technology, allow Morgan to bottle wines that are distinct examples of the winegrowing regions from which the fruit comes, as well as the natural characteristics of the fruit itself.
