This Rhone-style blend has a rich garnet color, highlighted with purple edges. Blackberry, white pepper, graphite and hints of smoked meat jump out of the glass. The wine is medium-full bodied with fine grained tannins, offering a mouthful of creme de violette and black fruit. Its weight and balance make it a perfect pairing with anything off the grill.
Morgan G17 is a blend of 94% Syrah, 3% Grenache, and 3% Tempranillo from northern and central Monterey County. "G17" is one of Monterey County's best known highways, linking several of our grape growing appellations.
This wine is sourced primarily from the Santa Lucia Highlands and Arroyo Seco Appellations of Monterey County. Cool to moderate daytime temperatures are mitigated by ocean breezes and cool nights - fostering acidity and balance. Here, the fog burns off early allowing ample sunshine to warm temperatures to the mid 80's during the summer and fall. The rising warm air draws the cool winds from the Monterey Bay in the late afternoon. By night time, temperatures cool to the low 50's.
