Winemaker Notes

The dark red color of this beautiful 2016 Napa Valley Merlot hints at its subtle plum and creme de cassis, but belies its rich bright red fruit aromas of cherry and raspberry. The well balanced acidity and round tannins marry well with the light oak profile on the palate giving it a length and complexity worthy of its sustainably farmed mid-Valley roots.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Brawny, substantial and complex, this wine offers dusty dried herb, sage and mountain-like tannin, settling into a groove on the midpalate that finds balance and a lift of acidity. The oak is well integrated and nuanced in nutmeg and clove.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Long Meadow Ranch Merlot shows excellent depth and attractive textures on the. TASTING NOTES: This wine fills the palate with flavors of black fruit, a touch of oak, and persistence. Enjoy it with Thai basil chicken. (Tasted: June 27, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
D 90
Decanter

Kirsch liqueur, mint and vanilla, becoming more savoury in the glass with garrigue herb complexity. Lush, decadent, almost mushroomy aromas.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
