Morgan Cote du Crows 75cl
Morgan Cotes du Crow’s is a blend from central and southern Monterey County. Here, the fog burns off early, allowing ample sunshine to warm temperatures to the mid to upper 80’s during the summer and fall. The rising warm air draws the cool winds from Monterey Bay in the late afternoon. By night time, temperatures cool to the low 50’s.

The wine was fermented in open top tanks and received manual punch-downs. This enabled good extraction and structure development with pleasant tannins. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to French oak barrels. The 11% new oak gives the wine subtle spice and vanilla characters without overpowering the elegant fruit profile.
This Rhone-style blend has a rich ruby red color, highlighted with purple edges. Pomegranate, dried herbs, and floral aromas jump out of the glass. The wine is medium-bodied with soft tannins; it offers a mouthful of raspberry, black tea, and plum. Its weight and balance make it a perfect pairing with anything off the grill.
