Farmstead Long Meadow Ranch Pinot Noir 2016
Anderson Valley, CA
93 pts. Wine Enthusiast:
"Delicious and exotic fruit flavors light up this elegant, concentrated wine. Rhubarb, black-cherry and spiced plum scents are followed by equally generous fruit flavors and deft touches of spicy oak that add nuances of baking spices and black tea."
93 pts. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley has a pale to medium ruby color and spicy notes of cinnamon, tree bark, dried cranberries, burnt orange peel and woodsmoke with a core of red and black berry fruit. The medium-bodied palate is elegant and nuanced with spicy character and a grainy, fresh frame, continuing to blossom on the long, detailed finish."
What a wonderful Anderson Valley Pinot! Fruit-forward in style, with subtle honeysuckle nectar and chestnut notes mingling with the red and black fruit flavors. This Pinot goes down easy, and has a nice long finish. A great food wine - try it with pork or poultry. (See our Cornish Game Hen recipe - it pairs with it perfectly!)
FROM THE WINERY
We grow the fruit for Long Meadow Ranch Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays among the rolling, mineral-rich slopes of Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley. Nestled against the banks of the Navarro River and dense groves of Coast Redwoods, our vineyards benefit from some of California’s best conditions for Burgundian grape varieties. But perhaps our favorite aspect of our vineyards is the diversity in soil types, and the opportunity it has presented to showcase many different faces of these wines we love.
Our Anderson Valley vineyards enjoy warm summers with a gentle marine influence. Narrow and low-lying, the valley funnels ocean fog and breezes in from the Pacific coast and rainfall here is plentiful, making it a cool, wet viticultural area. There is a large diurnal shift in temperatures in the deep end of the Anderson Valley, with up to 40-50°F differences from night to day. Our vineyards, surrounded by old-growth redwood trees, are mostly east-facing with an elevation variation of 50-120 feet and 2-35% slopes.
