2011 Oak Knoll District Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley: Oak Knoll District
We have always enjoyed wines from Tom Meadowcroft and his namesake winery. Today’s Meadowcroft Wines 2011 Oak Knoll District Cabernet Sauvignon sees the winery stretching its talents - and great fruit sources - even farther than usual. Where Tom’s Meadowcroft wines are characteristically rife with juicy red fruits, this wine shows off a darker, richer and more complex style of winemaking. Attribute this to the vintage, if you will, but we also give Tom Meadowcroft a ton of credit.
We’ve usually sell out of Tom’s wines very quickly, so please act quickly to avoid potential disappointment. We don’t want you to miss out on today’s Ultra QPR wine!
A deep sanguine hue, with slight touches of a rustic crimson throughout as well.
Rich and layered aromatics greet you upon the very first pour of today’s delicious Cab. Deep notes of black cherry and sweet plum are laid against saddle leather, coffee bean, California bay leaf, and hints of a fresh spring garden.
A classically elegant Napa Cab flavor profile, with lush dark fruit framed against hints of spice and subtle earth. Braised dark plum, black cherry, and blackberry comprise the fruit notes, with sandalwood, darkly roasted coffee bean, summer briar, aged leather, and pomegranate herbal black tea rounding out the flavor profile.
Very smooth upon entry, with well rounded flavors and a lengthy finish. The finish has great structure, with the slightest grip from tannin.
Grilled beef tenderloin, served with a porcini mushroom balsamic glaze.
