We have some kick-ass Napa Cabernet on deck before the holiday weekend, yessiree! Are you excited? We sure are. You know how we feel about the goods we have access to in our own backyard. Today we have an EPIC deal from a mindful, well adorned producer that’s available to you at 62% off! WHAT?!?!

The 2018s are just starting to release, but they’re already getting a ton of excellent press. Master Sommelier Bob Bath spoke to our local Napa Valley Register during Premiere Napa Valley and mused, "What I like about the 2018s is the depth of their character, a depth of fruit and structure for long-term aging… The fruit is not overripe; it’s perfectly ripe,.” Wine Enthusiast has also said it’s a vintage "widely considered fantastic in terms of both quality and quantity.” If those aren’t cues for you to stock up ASAP, we don’t what is!

Tom Meadowcroft, the man behind the wines, has been in the biz since the late 70s when he worked a harvest in Bordeaux. He’s a grower at heart and had worked predominantly in vineyard management in Napa and Washington state. There he implemented sustainable farming and was (and still is) a voice for environmental advocacy before launching his own project. 

Though this Cab is young, it certainly has plenty of life ahead of it (seriously, 15-20 years from now this wine will be singing). Aromas and flavors of blackberries, cassis, plums and chocolate all  lead to hints of toast, cedar, spicy and dusty violets. The palate packs a punch with nicely integrated tannins and a lively rush of acidity leading to a warm, lingering finish.

$25 for NAPA Cabernet from what will certainly be a highly coveted vintage? $100 for a 4-pack with shipping?! You don’t need more reasons to stock up, off you go!

THE STORY TO KNOW

Meadowcroft Wines are vineyard specific and limited in production, expressing both European wine heritage and California creativity. Meadowcroft is the namesake of Winegrower Tom Meadowcroft. The meaning of Meadowcroft is a fertile field or meadow and croft refers to a cultivated area that has been nurtured over time. The honeybee on the label symbolizes this conscientious work and the process of transformation from wine grapes into an outstanding wine.

“My hope is to create wines with a Sonoma pulse that express the complexity found in European varietals,” says Tom Meadowcroft.

With over thirty-five years of experience in viticulture and winemaking, Tom Meadowcroft knows dirt. Or better yet, soil. He can easily judge what makes a vineyard great. He enjoys discovering farmers with small vineyards throughout California that are producing amazing grapes and interesting varieties. He’s quick to identify these little-known gems and produce extraordinary small production wines.

Tom’s passion for wines stems from his experiences growing up, working and traveling in Europe and the United States. Early in life, he began his journey in winemaking by working the harvest of 1979 in Bordeaux. Following that harvest he studied at UC Davis and Napa College graduating with a degree in Viticulture and Enology. After earning his degrees, he worked in Napa and Washington State as a vineyard Manager focusing on sustainable farming and environmental advocacy. Throughout his career, Tom has managed dozens of properties for top wineries in Napa and Sonoma, all along instilling core principals relating to wine cultivation from the growing of wines to the making of the wines. These experiences inspire his vision for the Meadowcroft Wine he proudly makes today.
