Abreu Madrona Ranch is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with accents of Merlot and Petit Verdot. The wine is aged in 100% new French oak for two years. The wine receives an addition two years of bottle age prior to release.
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Madrona Ranch is just an amazing wine in the vintage. Notes of smoked meats intermixed with licorice, camphor, graphite, blackberry, and flowers, with a hint of cedar and spice box, have produced a wine that is more up-front and forward than most Abreu wines have been, and gorgeously rich and full-bodied. Last year I thought the wine needed 2-3 years of cellaring, but based on this tasting, I could drink it now or cellar it for 20+ years.
