This blend of the Mayacamas Estate and Rutherford Estate vineyards is a tribute to how the noble Merlot grape thrives in the Napa Valley. This Merlot has exceptional versatility for entertainment and dining.
The sweet red fruit nose is abundant with fresh cherry, raspberry 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.
Long Meadow Ranch is a collection of five properties: three in Napa Valley, one in Anderson Valley, and one in West Marin.
The team at Long Meadow Ranch employ diversified, sustainable, and organic farming methods to produce elegant, balanced wines that express the authentic varietal character and terroir of the estates.
Produced by Long Meadow Ranch in the heart of the Anderson Valley, this unique terroir benefits from the cooling influences of the Pacific Ocean, allowing a long ripening period for the grapes. Each year, this Chardonnay receives critical acclaim and always sells out fast.
