Abreu "Madrona Ranch" Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

98 points Robert Parker: The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Madrona Ranch has turned out better out of bottle than it was from cask. An extraordinary expression of Cabernet Sauvignon with ethereal notes of Asian spice, white flowers, creme de cassis, licorice, blackberries, and roasted espresso, the wine cascades over the palate with no hard edges. Extraordinarily pure, rich, and sweet with everything in perfect proportions and integrated impeccably, this is a monumental Cabernet Sauvignon with complexity, finesse, and amazing balance. It should drink well young but keep for 20 or more years. This is a prodigious effort from Napa's top viticulturalist - a man who has had an enormously positive impact on the quality of the finest wines of Napa Valley. (Dec 2005)

Paul Bush manages the vineyards himself, adding to the family’s knowledge of grape varieties, clones within a variety, and microclimates. “Intensive hands-on vineyard practices make wines that are frankly exceeding what we thought possible at these high elevations,” says Paul, “And we’re going to keep on improving over the next 30 years.” Madroña Vineyards is a member of the Apple Hill Wineries and the El Dorado Winery Association. We host and pour at many special events throughout the year. Read less
