Super mineral nose with discreet framing oak. Lemon flesh. Some rainer cherries. Saline and iodine. Subtle yet focused and incredibly complex nose. Such nice earth and mineral tones. Smells like Burgundy of yesteryear. Palate is so lean, salty and concentrated with a lingering hint of complex sweetness from the wood on the incredibly persistent finish. So juicy and leaning on the palate and just laser focused. So long. This has much more to give and has closed down a bit since I tasted it last. But a stunner. I’ll be back as it airs.
After 4 hours this is a wonder and has opened beautifully. Clear barely ripe granny smith apple, stunning mineral breadth and some white flowers. Palate is so juicy and saline. Luscious. It’s loosened up quite a bit. Long, structured finish. Super juicy. Fantastic. — a day ago
This 24 year old bubbly had enough off to pop cork 20 feet of my hillside. I just gotta pop corks off hillside . A delicious wine with lively pear and fruit layers . A delicious but subtle yeast flavor which surprised me. Given age , I expected more yeast. This may be best bubbly made in USA — 16 days ago
I like this one a lot. I really think this needs more time to fully evolve, but it’s drinking nicely now. An elegant Chardonnay. Super golden color really stands out. A nice minerality that hits mid palate. For me it’s the wet stone and acidity that I like the most, along with the subtle fruit. Definitely not trying to be a California Chard. Burgundian style in Oregon? Maybe. — 5 days ago
Light yellow in color with a golden tint.
Nose of apples, lemons, citrus, light oak, light tropical fruits, herbs, spices and minerals.
Light to medium in body and creamy, with medium plus acidity,
Dry on the palate with limes, light grapefruits, citrus, lemons, apples, earth, light wood, pears, spices, pineapples and black pepper.
Nice length on the spicy finish with limes, spices and bitter almonds.
This is a very tasty Chardonnay from Oregon. Very lightly oaked, which is very nice. Easy drinking and interesting.
This is a great sipping wine. Nicely balanced with mild complexity, and spicier than I expected it to be.
Would be interesting to try it in a couple of years, and see how it evolves.
Good by itself or with food. I enjoyed it all by itself, by the beach.
12.6% alcohol by volume.

From magnum. 95% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Noir with lees. Sees barrel and steel with lees playing a big part along the way. So unique. Introspective. Faint blush in the glass but all about the texture. Salty and chalky. Long finish that is very faintly oxidative. These Morgen Long wines are really saying something. — 2 days ago
