WE 91 Vinous 90 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - "An amazingly vivid nose of cherry, eucalyptus and morning dew on wild fennel promises a stunning wine in this clonal combo from Morgan. The flavors aren’t quite so mind-blowing, though, as basic fruit-punch elements meet with touches of peppercorn and nutmeg."
According to Josh Raynolds - "Bright ruby-red. Primary dark berry and cherry scents unfold slowly to show peppery spice, cola and mocha elements. Fleshy and seamless in the mouth, offering pliant red and dark berry flavors that tighten up on the back half. Shows surprising vivacity for its heft, finishing with strong cut, harmonious tannins and a touch of lingering woodsmoke."
Winemakers Notes - "This special wine demonstrates the power and finesse of Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. It displays aromas of dried cherry, cola, spice and smoke. Flavors of cranberry and pomegranate are complemented by notes of almond skin and minerals. Perfectly poised fruit/acid balance make this incredibly food-versatile. It is a wonderful accompaniment to roast chicken and grilled salmon, as well as almost any duck, beef or lamb preparation." 14.2% ABV.
