WINE REVIEW: Long Meadow Ranch 2016 Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley, CA ($45)

by Andrew Chalk

Long Meadow Ranch has already established an impressive track record with its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines from California’s cool Anderson Valley. This example has more age than most current releases and that is an unambiguous advantage. It has grown up and become fully resolved. The winery recommends pairing with duck, or grilled salmon. I paired it, successfully, with roast chicken and vegetables.

Appearance: Translucent ruby with garnet rim;

Nose: Savory and raspberry notes;

Palate: This wine is mature and can be enjoyed right now. The tannins are silky but grip the inside of the mouth. The ripe raspberry fruit is mellow, contributing to a long finish. Earthy notes underpin a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
