Abreu and Grimes have again hit the bull’s eye with the 2008 Madrona Ranch. It exhibits the tell-tale notes of black fruits, hot rocks, spice box, licorice, chocolate, and a hint of minerals in its forward, plush, opulent, flamboyant personality. Atypically exuberant and showy for a 2008 Napa Cabernet-based wine, it should drink well during its first 25 years of life.

Reviewer, Antonio Galloni - The 2008 Madrona Ranch opens with an incredibly expressive bouquet. Espresso, mocha and licorice meld into dark red fruit and sweet exotic spices in this superb wine. The 2008 is an extraordinarily polished, refined wine for the vintage. Sweet spiced and floral notes reappear to round out the finish. The relatively high percentage of Cabernet Franc (37%) comes through in spades here. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033.

The 2008 Madrona Ranch is slightly more restrained as well as the most tannic of these three vintages. This is not to say it is too tannic. Like all of Abreu’s wines it possesses remarkable intensity as well as abundant notes of incense, camphor and black and blue fruits, and a Bordeaux-like structural profile.

California
Since the famous Judgement of Paris in 1976 California wines have unquestionably ranked among the best in the world. From the Anderson Valley in the North through Temecula Valley in the South, California vineyards grow dozens of wine grape varietals that produce wines of many different styles. The California wine industry has steadily gained ground since the 1960s (the industry took a major hit following Prohibition), but its roots date back over 200 years. Major grape varietals include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. View all our items from California
