Long Meadow Ranch Pinot Noir 2017, Anderson Valley, California

Located in the west or ‘deep end’ of the Anderson Valley in Mendocino County, approximately 2.5 hours north of San Francisco, our Anderson Valley Estate has 69 acres planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. With the Navarro River to the southwest and its close proximity to the Pacific Ocean, the Estate has a natural marine layer that blankets the vineyards and creates terroir ideal for our estate-grown Burgundian varietals to mature slowly and ripen to the peak of their varietal character. “Intense and lively, the nose is full of sweet spice and black currant aromas. On the palate, there are flavors of violet and rose followed by hints of cherry and spice. An agile wine with developing minerality and notes of earth and fresh herbs. A truly multilayered wine with so much energy in the fruit.”
