2012 Merlot  Mayacamas Estate

2012 Merlot Mayacamas Estate

The third time Long Meadow Ranch has shown off its Merlot with a varietal bottling.  Immediately, the youthful deep garnet hue hints at the vibrancy and freshness of this young red wine.  It's at once refined and simply pleasing.

Wine Profile

Tasting Notes The nose suggests red berry aromas and cocoa powder. On the palate, the wine expands to plum, cherry, and a perfect balance of crisp acidity and sweet fruit extraction. The tannin backbone is subtle but ever-present to lend structure to the persistent finish, which extends the enjoyment of the last notes of chocolate, slight green peppercorn, sweetly toasted oak, and juicy cherry. Enjoy now. – Ashley Heisey
Vineyard Notes The third consecutive cool and late growing season of 2012 was perfect for Merlot. Our dry winter ended with moderate rainfall in March, giving us a long growing season and also led to richer flavor development. We opened the vine canopies to ensure sunlight, warmth and good air circulation around the grape clusters. The night-harvested grapes retained their enticing aromas and naturally pleasing acidity all the way to the bottle.
Food Pairing Notes Perfect with LMR grass-fed Highland beef, with smoked baby back ribs, or with LMR grass-fed lamb.
