Morgan Winery Montery Syrah.
We are enthusiastic about the current and future quality of Syrah grown in the cool climate of Monterey. Several vineyard sources in the Salinas Valley have been selected for their contributions to our rich and powerful, smooth and supple style.

The Vineyards
Morgan Syrah is sourced from Santa Lucia Highlands, Arroyo Seco, and San Lucas appellations. The cooler climate SLH fruit adds acidity and bright fruitiness, with the warmer climate sources providing structure and concentration. Overnight low temperatures are similar in these appellations, with the more southerly vineyards experiencing warmer daytime highs.

The Vintage
Cold, wet weather at the beginning of the spring threw off the growth of the grapes, delaying the growing season by a month. The result was a harvest ending in early November of rich, intensely flavored grapes that retained their natural acidity.

Vinification and Aging
Syrah is fermented in open top fermenters using manual punchdown for optimum extraction and structure with compliant tannins.

After primary fermentation, the wine is transferred to French oak barrels, of which 25% are new, for malo-lactic fermentation and 13 months of aging. The wine was bottled in December .

Aromas, Flavors ' Palate Impressions
Include black cherry, blackberry, pomegranate, leather, white pepper, black licorice, with notes of roasted coffee and leather. The saturated black/purple color hints at a wine of rich fruit and structure. The wine picks up barrel spice, brown sugar, and pepper notes on the finish, while firm tannins resolve into the density of the fruit.

The quality of the fruit and the tannin structure suggest a wine that will continue to develop and improve for some time.
