2008 Abreu "Madrona Ranch" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1122291 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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. (AG)  (12/2011)

97 points Vinous

 The 2008 Madrona Ranch is a dark, beguiling beauty. Deep, textured and nuanced, the 2008 possesses tremendous richness and striking inner perfume. Super-ripe dark cherry jam, plum, chocolate, menthol, licorice and torrefaction are some of the notes that give the 2008 its distinctive personality. The tannins are present, but also impeccably balanced in this sumptuous, racy wine. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s inner sweetness. Even so, the 2008 Madrona remains a decidedly potent, brooding wine. (AG)  (5/2018)

94 points Wine Spectator

 Ultrarich and gutsy, nuzzling up to syrupy, this is a chewy, extracted style that extends the flavors to kirsch, black licorice, blackberry jam, espresso, hazelnut and toffee. Ends with chewy, grainy tannins that give the flavors traction. (JL)  (6/2013)

K&L Notes

Abreu Winery was established by David Abreu of Rutherford, and began releasing wine with the 1987 vintage. Since then, the wines have become highly respected and sought after. The Madrona Ranch offering comes from a vineyard at the base of Spring Mountain, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot in Pleasanton loam and Aiken loam.
