2019 Morgen Long Seven Springs Vineyard Chardonnay
"(Chardonnay “Seven Springs Vineyard”- Morgen Long (Eola-Amity Hills)) The 2019 Seven Springs Vineyard bottling of chardonnay from Seth Long is another superb effort from him in this top flight vintage. This is the youngest and most reductive of Seth’s 2019s and demands decanting time, if one is inclined to drink it early on. However, with thirty minutes in decanter, it does start to budge a bit and eventually delivers a nose of pear, apple, iodine, a very pretty base of soil, hints of almond, white flowers and a deft touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and tightly-knit, with an excellent core and mineral drive, vibrant acids and excellent focus and grip on the long, primary and promising finish. Today, the wine is most impressive on the backend, where it has enormous lift and energy. Once this wine blossoms, it is going to be stellar, but it will need some cellaring to open up properly. (Drink between 2026-2050)" 95 points - JG
