Abreu Vineyards Madrona Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$515

The perfect 2012 Madrona Ranch displays notes of roasted coffee, forest floor, incense, Christmas fruitcake, blackcurrants and blackberry fruit in an incredibly fragrant, full-bodied, opulent style. Far more dramatic and open-knit Capella, the 2012 Madrona is super-intense, with incredibly velvety tannins. This is a sublime wine of the highest order, a fabulous example of the vintage, and a tribute to the craftsmanship of David Abreu and Brad Grimes. It should drink well for 30+ years. Robert Parker

Absolutely stunning. The fourth bottle of the 2012 I have tasted within the last few weeks. Clearly needs years to be at its best. Terrific expression of this site. 98+

...the 2012 Madrona Ranch is a real stunner. Bright, nuanced and lively, the 2012 exudes freshness. Blood orange, sweet red berries, mint, cinnamon and a host of bright notes grace the palate. Exquisite, subtle and beautifully nuanced, the 2012 has everything going on... (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Oct 2015)

Fantastic potential, a baby so let it be for a few more years to amplify complexity. #abreu

Vertical of Madrona Ranch 1991-2012 | A clear stylistic shift starting after 2000 towards high pH, heavy extraction, extreme ripeness, and oak.

What a beauty, but quite tight. Some time needed for it to open up. Intense and really fresh too.
