Long Vineyards

Napa Valley Chardonnay 1996

Matt Austin
9.2

Zelma Long was one of the pioneering female winemakers in Napa, getting her start with Robert Mondavi before taking the reins at Simi. Her estate winery was on Pritchard Hill, which is a pretty fancy place nowadays, and she made wines there from 1977 until 2006 when it was sold to a Portuguese family who renamed the property Gandona (Philippe Melka now makes the wines). You don't hear much about Long these days, but the Cabs are classic old-school Napa and tend to age very well. As it turns out the chard is no exception. Deep gold. Nutty, but not oxidized. Age has integrated the oak well. — 6 years ago

@Ryan Mitchell surely Zelma is kicking herself now for selling in '06 #missedthebigpayday

Meia Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2014

Thank you @Carl Fischer for this full and delicious Cab Franc and for the incredibly thoughtful coaster showing the map/gps position of my home. Very cool idea and an amazing host gift. I am slammed at work but I will be slowly posting the the dozens of amazing wines we had here the last week of April and recognizing the special people who made it fun. — 4 years ago
