Background

In the late 1800’s, the majestic Long Meadow Ranch property thrived with vineyards, apple orchards, olive groves, hay and a goat milk dairy until farming fell dormant during Prohibition. Over the following years, the property became swallowed by the encroaching forest until the Halls bought the property in 1989.

The Hall family carefully breathed life back into the land, nurturing it back to its glory, and then some, by cutting back the abandoned olive trees and replanting the vineyards and apple orchards as you see them growing today. Home to the Mayacamas Estate, the rugged 650-acre landscape nestled in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains also gave way to a long, sweeping meadow, thus the name Long Meadow Ranch was born.


Tasting Notes

WINEMAKER NOTES
Classic, complex, and elegant.
“A deep ruby red color with a combination of dried earth and musky roses with penetrating spice aromas on the nose. Shows a refined and silken texture and remains fresh and lively across the palate with intensity of fruit. Intriguing, balanced, and complex, it is a great picture of the finesse and intensity of Pinot Noir in Anderson Valley.” ~Stéphane Vivier

VINEYARD NOTES
The growing season got off to a very fast start, despite the rainy weather, temperatures stayed warm. Early in August the weather took a turn to a steady and cool regimen, a blessing that prolonged the season and added time for the flavors and textural elements of the grapes to slowly ripen to perfection.

FOOD PAIRING NOTES
Duck breast with cherry mostarda, grilled salmon with chanterelle mushrooms.
