Morgan's 2011 Double L Pinot Noir presents aromas of pomegranate, pepper spice and smoky oak with hints of leather and cedar. Flavors of black cherry and strawberry are backed by a deft touch of toasty oak and structuring tannins. An exquisite match for duck confit, lamb shank, and prime rib.

A serious Pinot Noir for aging, yet it's so succulent now in raspberries and cherries, it's hard to resist drinking it. The acid-tannin balance showcases the terroir, with a brisk minerality keeping all the ripe fruit and oak balanced. Give it 4-5 years in a good cellar.

This wine's youth shows in the fresh, bright vitality of its red cherry fruit, and its supporting notes of strawberries adds to its inviting nature of its attractive aromas. On the medium-full side in balance, and convincingly filled with fairly deep and easy to like youthfully exuberant fruit, the wine has already found the beginnings of a supple texture and is sure to pick up plenty of Pinot Noir's velvety side over time if its current charms can be resisted for now. $54

Shows lots of smoke, leather and wood flavors, with graceful plum and blackberry notes folding underneath. Drink now.
