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.

Pop and pour. On the nose: black cherry, currant, oaky vanilla, anise, pencil lead. Taste: Schrader dense/rich, smooth wine with black fruit, currants, spice, oak, fig and a plumy cedar medium plus finish. Not a CCS or RBS, but I would not dump and spit! Cheers! — 5 days ago

The inviting nose shows blackberry, cassis, raspberry, nutmeg, vanilla, eucalyptus, and subtle fresh herbs. Fresh high-toned acidity frames the well sculptured medium to full body. Great fruit intensity. Polished tannins leads to a long elegant finish.
Young and long life ahead.

Calculated Risk

Barrel Selection Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing black fruits with cedar, licorice, vanilla, spices, peppercorn, red chili pepper, tobacco leaf, dark chocolates, herbs and earth.

Nice finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Still young, but already enjoyable.

This 4 year old will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime.

Nicely balanced with a soft and spicy mouthfeel, and good by itself as a sipping wine.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$85.

9.5

👃 is incredible. Black and blue fruit + olive.
Medium+ body, chewy mouthfeel. Blackberry, currant, black cherry, touch of dust, and acidity that is Corison. This is my favorite Napa Corison. Different than the ‘14s, ‘16’s, and 18’s that I love. Thanks
