Blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, and 1% Merlot sourced estate-owned vineyards in Rutherford (30%), South Napa (22%), the St. Helena home ranch (17%), and Stag's Leap District (Barboza Vineyard, 17% and Las Rocas Vineyard, 14%). Just opened this, 14 years in the bottle after a couple of years in the barrel! Still tasting well, young and juicy, should easily last another 14 years in the bottle. Deep Ruby, dark fruits, spice, complex nose. Palate reflects juicy rich berry fruits, well structured harmonious wine. Fine soft rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, tobacco and earthy tones. Wow! — 7 days ago
Fantastic bottle, paired well with Grilled Pork Loin & Chili Sauce…. Many complex flavors… the Grenache pulled off the greatness — 4 days ago
This bold wine is quite dark in the glass and it offers up a nose of black raspberries, cedar, clove, vanilla and a hint of mint. On the palate, it’s brawny. Big notes of dark fruit mingle with those oak spices in a way that’s both fruity and savory. The tannic structure is toothy, so this wine wants a steak. — 5 days ago
When you tell your wife to open anything I’ll be back from the store. She picks the inaugural vintage of a 7 year vertical you have been collecting. And it’s the last bottle. PS she usually hates this wine. Shocked and saddened that it was the last but so stoked to be drinking it tonight!!! Cheers! — 2 days ago
Had this at Bern’s Steak house. Often referred to as “Baby Grange,” ‘16: blend of 51% Cab Sauv & 49% Shiraz, aged 12 months in American oak, partly in previous-vintage Grange casks. Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe black fruits, sweet and complex spice. On palate juicy blackberry flavors with notes of tobacco, cacao and toasty spices. Well balanced with acidity, fine ripe tannins, long finish ending with smoky spice, fruit & well integrated with oak, went well with my 19oz Strip Steak! — 17 days ago
Great! 1hr decant but probably should have PnP’d as this tired quickly and is a little past prime drinking window. Started out at 97 and ended at 94. Dark red, maroon color with ample bricking. Nose has bramble, cedar, and licorice. Massive depth which separates the $50+ Bordeaux’s from the same priced Napa wines. Lots of cherries and some Amarone and Port elements near the end. Medium finish. A fav of mine! Very consistent across vintages. — 4 days ago
Meadowcroft Wines Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 Napa Valley, California
It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a very tasty one from Oakville.
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, cedar, licorice, vanilla, spices, dark coffee, maple syrup, black pepper, light earth, spices, light vegetables, herbs and tobacco leaf.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, oak, coffee, tobacco, herbs, spices, dark chocolates and peppercorn.
Nice spicy finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Soft and elegant. Fruit forward with nice balance.
Needs a few hours to open up properly, and I gave it 3 hours in the decanter.
Complex and tasty. Rich, extracted and elegant. The tangy finish making it interesting. Loved the nose once it opened up.
A good quality wine that will age nicely in the next 10 years. Has good potential to become a 94+ wine.
Good by itself or with food, and will pair nicely with a big piece of steak.
A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petite Verdot. A small production of only 6 barrels.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
$125. — 5 days ago
