Morgan Santa Lucia Highlands Twelve Clones 2007 Pinot Noir, $21.99-$31.99, 92 points appeared pomegranate toward copper red with a clear rim and considerably more leggy than the 2012.
Still a beautiful bouquet of leather, black cherry, cedar, cinnamon, and clove impressed.
The medium-plus body carried good acidity, layered mild tannin, and an abundance of nuanced flavors within its luscious texture. Flavors of blackberry cordial (14.2%alcohol), hints of mint, cardamom, bourbon and white pepper were outstanding.
Finished long on the trailing palate, lingering mineral notes, black pepper, and eucalyptus.
Well, what can I say, but Cali Pinot Noir can age well; is it the rule for Cali PN? Probably not.
