Morton Estate

Morton Estate 2009 Chardonnay (Black Label)
Enjoyed this wine at the Los Altos Grill in San Francisco with our starter of grilled artichoke with a spiced dipping sauce and a skillet of corn bread.
Nose: For a 3yr old wine this example has remarkable youth: Citrus and tree fruit aromas smell like just picked, sun warmed lemons and peaches. Plenty of oak, but not invasive. 
5 Stars

Palate: With medium++ to full body, creamy, almost oily texture with flavors of peach and lemon, grape fruit and spiced this dry and flavorful wine will surprise many at how good this wine really is and to those already familiar with Morton Estate's portfolio this is a keeper!
5 Stars
