2019 Morgen Long Willamette Valley Chardonnay
"The 2019 regular bottling of Willamette Valley chardonnay from Seth Long is once again composed from a blend of fruit from six different vineyards, all of them dry-farmed, with forty percent of the blend this year from Seven Springs Vineyard, twenty-five percent from X-Omni Vineyard and nineteen percent from Durant Vineyard. This year the wine ended up being raised in twenty percent new oak. The wine is beautifully expressive on the nose, offering up scents of pear, almond, a complex base of salty soil tones, apple blossoms, a hint of iodine and a suave foundation of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and beautifully balanced, with a lovely core, superb soil signature, zesty acids and a long, focused and complex finish. This is a touch more refined in personality than the very good 2018 version and is a lovely bottle of chardonnay. It is still a fairly young wine, but decanting it opens it up nicely and it is hardly a crime to be drinking it now! 2021-2045." 93 points - JG
