Tasting Notes

Aromas consist of ripe cherry and blackberry, fruit leather, red currant, mocha, cocoa nib and a hint of fennel seed. The palate is a touch darker in orientation and has an added touch of dark chocolate. The palate has soft, supple tannins, a full body and moderate to low acidity. The finish is long, with lingering sweet baking spice.

Vineyard Designation

Runquist Vineyards

Production Notes

These grapes were picked at optimum maturity, de-stemmed to an open top fermentation tank, and fermented on the skins for 14 days. It was aged in 40% new French and Hungarian oak for 15 months.

Winemaker Notes

Every year from 2003 to 2013 our family would spend a week at Lake San Antonio in southern Monterey County. We would cram together in tight quarters in a modular home, spend the days on the lake water skiing, and the nights on the deck mostly laughing and having the best of times. One tradition that stood out was the 6:30 am morning ski run. The lake was quiet, undisturbed and smooth as glass, which is where we derived the name Morning Glass. Diving into a cold lake that early in the morning is a soul cleansing experience, and this wine is an homage to our eleven years at Lake San Antonio.

Pairings

Enjoy this wine with a gooey Bacon Cheeseburger, or a Roasted Herb Pork Chop.
