Long Meadow Ranch Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

According to the winery: 'Notes of black licorice, anise seed, and alluring perfume dance in and out without dominating. The finish is full of watering, pleasing fruit and polished tannins. This wine shows beautifully now, and will only become more complex with cellaring.'

Really love the flavor of this wine. I taste dark fruit and some amount of cedar.

A wonderful cab. Aroma of dark fruits which carry over to he taste on the palate. Tannins are somewhat soft. A moderate finish. The freshness of this 2006 is very pleasing.

Without decanting this wine was closed completely in both aroma and taste. When decanted for an hour things changed. The color was dark purple with a brick red rim. Aroma was an abundance of cherry and dark fruit. On the palate cherry dominated and a hint of vanilla. Did not pick up any oak. The wine was super soft with hardly any tannins. The finish was medium and enjoyable.

Deep dark purple. Aroma of cherry, plum, a hint of vanilla. The palate reflects the aroma and includes very light oak and cassis. Very soft tannins and a medium finish. A very nice cab.

The 2008 vintage expresses the full potential of the early growing season and beautiful fruit maturity. Enjoy the balance and youthfulness of this blend upon release or for years to come!

An extraordinary Cabernet that stands out even in this great vintage, and among its Rutherford peers. Quite dry and tannic in youth, it shows an astringency that strongly suggests the cellar. Underneath are powerhouse flavors of blackberries, black a... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Long Meadow Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 1500ml

"An exceptional Cabernet; the depth of earth, spice, and fruit layered with natural flavors creates a wine that is particularly harmonious and compelling. The nose exemplifies notes of black currant, cassis, black cherry, cedar, anise, and smoky black tea. The well-balanced earthiness of the wine reflects the natural LMR terroir, full of forest floor, peat, and dried herbs. Already beginning to mellow, the soft, silky tannins are luscious on your palate. Although smooth and well-balanced in its youth, the wine shows complexity that will allow it to be age for many years to come." - Ashley Heisey, Winemaker ** Only 8 in Stock **

Vintage: 1999 01/17/2009

Wine Spectator ReviewFirm, dark and intense, with compact currant, pencil lead, earth, leather and cedary flavors that clamp down tightly on the finish, where a cloak of gripping tannins takes hold. Best from 2005 through 2012.

Vintage: 1997 01/16/2009

...Cassis, black cherry, plum syrup, licorice, bitter chocolate and leather on the nose; reminded me of Saint-Julien. Concentrated and rather powerful, with slightly inky flavors of cassis and dark chocolate and a faint herbal streak. Dense and solid... Stephen Tanzer.
