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.

92 points.

$125.

Estate Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

2019 vintage. Comes on like a hurricane. Subtle spice and rich earth nose. Medium-heavy bod. Explosive and the 40 second finish indicates staying power. Great fruit-acidity/tannins balance. Going places. — 22 days ago
