Madrigal Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose opens with an expressive fusion of aromas, highlighted by sweet blackberry and cherry mixed with earthy spice. On the palate, our trademark up-front fruit turns supple and elegant with juicy cherry and creme de cassis. Waves of dark chocolate, mocha and a whisper of mint complete the tasting experience.

Since the late 1930's, three generations of the Madrigal family have farmed the vineyards of the Napa Valley. Our family history here is a constant source of inspiration and something that guides us in our wine making. We value the long relationship we've had with the land and people here, believing that the combined wisdom of the folks who have lived here for generations and a deep appreciation of these vineyards can be tasted in our wine. One of the things we enjoy most about being a small producer is that we get the chance to know the people who drink our wines. We're thrilled to show off our brand new winery, four years in the works, right in the heart of Napa Valley's Vineyards. Give us a call, we'll share some wine and give you an up-close look at the great new winemaking equipment and the barrel cellar. And there's nothing finer than a stroll through the vineyards, wineglass in hand! Read less

This is one of the best Cabernets I've tasted. It's all Napa in the nose, with a plethora of scents alternating between blackberry, black cherry, and chocolate. Cherry and cocoa with hints of earth and spice in the palate. It almost tastes like a Chateau Montelena, but is a little more forgiving with respect to its tannin levels. Nevertheless, it still gets that earthiness, the licorice, the leather, a little blueberry, black cherry, and layers upon layers of flavor. Really phenomenal.
