2016 Morgan "Double L Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay (Previously $40)

SKU #1407415 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Limpid yellow. Powerful, mineral-accented Meyer lemon, pear and vanilla scents show very good clarity and complicating suggestions of fennel and toasty lees. Minerally and focused in the mouth, offering pliant citrus and orchard fruit flavors; deeper suggestions of honey and buttered toast emerge on the back half. Shows impressive depth as well as energy and finishes smoky and very long, with a suave floral nuance hanging on. (JR) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Aged 10 months in 15% new French oak, the 2016 Chardonnay Double L is a step up in quality and is a more serious, layered Chardonnay. White peach, white flowers, honeysuckle, and a touch of brioche all emerge from this silky, elegant effort that has racy acidity, terrific balance, and a great finish. Drink it any time over the coming 5-7 years, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it keep longer. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Lemon cream, peach and mango show on the nose of this top-tier bottling from the historic regional producer. The flavors are light and bright, with lemon juice and apple flesh, though the wine feels a bit more reserved in this vintage. (MK) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Showing a clear familial tie to Morgan's Highland Chardonnay, this one from the winery's estate vineyard steers away from pushy ripeness and fruity sweetness and is a vivacious, firmly balanced, medium-bodied bottling that runs to citrus and stones. Its vivid acidity and somewhat leaner, more restrained style make it a welcome partner to lighter seafoods of all kinds, and, while we do not anticipate great complexity to come, it promises to keep nicely and remain bright and vital for a good many years. *One Star* Inner quote mark (2/2019)
