Long Meadow Ranch “Ranch House Red” Blend, 2009, Napa Valley, California

13 Aug

DSCN1787-001A stunning red blend from Napa with depth, vigor and stamina. Intensely colored, with a plummy nose expressing deep black cherry tones and hints of black tea. Lots of ripe fruit on the palate, with mocha and baking spice singing backup vocals. Well-integrated fruit presence and smoky oak character. An ideal BBQ wine built around a backbone of Cabernet Sauvignon; it’s fruity and approachable, yet structured enough to please the most sophisticated palate. $36
