Long Meadow Ranch came into existence when President Ulysses S. Grant signed a land patent granting 640 acres to Civil War veteran E.J. Church. In the late 1800's the property thrived with vineyards, apple orchards, and olive groves, however, all agricultural activities fell dormant during prohibition. It was not until 1989, when the Hall family purchased the estate, that agricultural activity resumed. Today, the 650 acre estate is home once again to vineyards, orchards, olive trees as well as cattle and other produce.
Complex, well balamced, soft, supple and intensity savory. Medium body, acid and tannins. Alluring flavors of baking-spice, strawberry forest floor, dried red and black berries, tea leaves, dried flowers, graphite and tobacco leaves float across the lush palate. Roasted Duck with Cherries and Rhubarb woiuld be an ideal match.
