Carmel Valley Adventures at Taste Morgan

The Taste Morgan Tasting room was our stop. Located in the Crossroads Shopping Center it seemed like a reasonable place to gather and create a starting point for a day in Carmel Valley. It’s situated in the shopping center in a nice little store front and or only $5 you get to indulge in 5 selections of what they have opened that day. The tasting bar is large enough for about six people or eight if your all on a fist name basis (or would like to be). There is also a couch and a couple of chairs in a group for a more relaxed casual taste while you wonder what the minions are up to. There is also some nice cork screws (no, reeeeally nice) for sale along with a collection of other wine related and brand name items. But enough with the bla bla bla and on to the reason for the visit, the wine!

Their estate vineyards have definite credentials as do their source vineyards. This shows in their wines, mostly Chardonnays and Pinot Noir’s, they all present themselves nicely with 5-7’s and ***. The only fly in the mix was a mix of Port Varietals that although started with promise on the nose fell flat on the pallets of our tasting dynamic duo.
Morgan vineyards have the politically correct and tree hugger adored, organic certification but more importantly, (at least to Koala) was the sustainable designation of their vineyards. A nice place to start a trip down the Carmel Valley and a worthy first taste. Tell em WineWalkabout said “g’day”.

Happy Tasting Adventures,

Kiwi & Koala
