Weekly Wine Review

Long Meadow Ranch is a amazing place. They are a full functioning vineyard, farm and ranch, focused on  organic sustainable agriculture. All of the highland cattle are grass fed and raised with no growth hormones or antibiotics. Check out there site

Long Meadow Ranch Ranch House Red 2007

Made primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon with supporting amounts of Merlot , Sangiovese and Petite Sirah.
13.5 abv

This wine is intensely aromatic soon as the cork is pulled. Scents of cherry and plum jump out followed by  spice notes. This wine makes its presence known right away. On the palate, the wine grabs you and lets you know it is in charge with gripping tannins.This wine needs food without question, well if not it needs air and lots of it. This a full throttle wine with great fruit, interesting spice and secondary flavors to keep any Cab drinker interested. And all this for $20.
