2005 E.J. Church Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
Our reserve wine takes its name from E.J. Church, Long Meadow Ranch’s pioneering settler who acquired the property via a patent grant from President Ulysses S. Grant in 1872.
We have replanted the southwest-facing vineyards which E.J. Church established in the 1870’s. These mountain grown grapes, planted at 1300 feet elevation, develop deep fruit flavors and ripe tannins which are handcrafted into an elegant, balanced wine. Quite approachable now, this wine will continue to improve with 5 years or more of age.
