Meadowcroft Cabernet Sauvignon Mt Veeder 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Nearing the age of four years, this Cabernet remains hefty in tannins, but it?s not undrinkable, because those tannins are soft and lush. In fact, they?re an integral part of the network that makes the wine so interesting, which also includes the classic Cabernet flavors of blackberries and cassis.

Tom Meadowcroft began his career in wine by picking apples in Bordeaux. At 19, he showed up in Bordeaux in August, when all of France was on holiday. This didn't deter Tom, who headed for the apple orchards until everyone returned from holiday and he could get into the vineyards. Coming back to the states for his formal education, it wasn't long before Tom joined Buckland Vineyard Management. Here's where we do some name dropping. Tom developed vineyards for Cakebread, Duckhorn, Opus One, Mondavi, Stags Leap, just to name a few. Needless to say, with Tom's vineyard experience, he believes it all starts with the dirt. In 1999 Tom bought his Mt. Veeder property and had to totally rework the vineyard. He pulled up every vine and started over with new Cabernet vines. The first vintage to come off of Mt. Veeder was his 2005 Cabernet which garnered a 94 rating in Wine Enthusiast and was name one of the Top 100 wines of the year. And as they say, the rest is history. Read less
