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. Meadowcroft wines are his story. Tom works alongside winemaker, Petar Kirilov, to create wines with a Sonoma pulse that express the complexity found in European varietals.
Tasting notes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. This balanced and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon showcases aromas of black cherry, nutmeg, and sandalwood, followed by earthy forest floor, dried sage, and secondary floral notes. Cranberry, fine leather, and espresso lead on the palate. A subtle herbaceousness and minerality bolster its richness, while close-grained tannins provide structure. Drink now through 2027.
