This pale pink wine has a nose of strawberries, green parts and all. It is a fresh and lively aroma, one that invites the sip deliciously. The palate shows more strawberries, along with some stone fruit and a hint of salinity. The acidity is refreshing and will make for good food pairings across a wide range of dishes. — 3 days ago

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. — 4 days ago
N: Very grassy, stony, a hint of pineapple coming through.Mineral, almost the beachyness* of Chablis or…Manzanilla.
P: Subdued Green apple, crunchy, some salt, Interesting wood on the palate from combination of French & Oregonian oak.
It’s there, but not interfering. No but-tah.
Delicious, snappy, refreshing.

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. — 8 days ago

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. — 5 days ago
This is a tasty Merlot based Bordeaux blend from Washington State.
Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with a nice mouthfeel.
Showing blue and black fruits with wood, earth, vegetables, spices, herbs, coffee and peppercorn.
Needs time to open up properly, but good right out of the bottle too.
Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.
