This blend of our Mayacamas Estate and Rutherford Estate blocks is a tribute to how the noble Merlot grape thrives in our Napa Valley. The sweet red fruit nose is abundant with fresh cherry, raspberry preserve and a hint of Bourbon vanilla. Plum and a very light cedar note emerge on the palate. Generous acidity and long soft tannins result in a lingering freshness that gives this wine exeptional versatility for entertainment and dining
Long Meadow Ranch wines are renowned for their elegance and balanced style. Sommeliers at the finest chef-led establishments feature our wines on award-winning lists. Their sustainably farmed vineyards allow them to bring extraordinary flavors and integrity to everyone’s table.
Abundant rainfall and a mild spring resulted in an extended flowering period and vigorous vines. Warming temperatures in August resulted in harvest beginning early for white varietals, but cool weather followed, allowing sugar levels to balance and extend the season allowing for a beautiful crop. Matured and aged in 25% new French oak.
Pairs well with grass-fed beef, smoked baby back ribs, or barbecued pulled pork sandwiches.
