Morrison Lane is a small winery located in Walla Walla, Washington. While perhaps best known for providing uncommon varietals from their estate vineyards to local winemakers, they also bottle a number of these as single varietal wines, including a Cinsault, a Nebbiolo, and a Carmenere. The Nebbiolo reviewed here, is one of the few I have had from the state that really shines.
Morrison Lane’s wines can be somewhat difficult to find. West Seattle Cellars is one of the few spots locally I have seen bottles on the shelves (please note, I am not affiliated with this store in any way). However, if you do come across their wines or are traveling to Walla Walla, I recommend giving them a try.
Morrison Lane Nebbiolo 2003
A very complex nose with fig, spice, and mature red wine aromas. An excellent taste and an extended finish with a touch of spice at the end.
