At age 16, the 2002 Madrona Ranch has shed some of its baby fat and has gained incredible complexity and depth, yet it's still young, exuberant, and flamboyant in every way. Offering up a heavenly perfume of blackcurrants, forest floor, menthol, tobacco, and spring flowers as well as hints of new saddle leather, this beauty is seamless and elegant on the palate, with ultra-fine tannins, the density and depth that's the hallmark of this estate, and perfect integration of its fruit, tannins, alcohol, and acidity. This is thrillingly singular stuff from Brad Grimes that could come from nowhere else in the world, and it's one of the great, great wines from Napa Valley.
The 2002 Madrona Ranch possesses an opaque blue/purple color as well as an extraordinary, enveloping, massive aromatic profile consisting of spring flowers, charcoal, lead pencil shavings, blueberries, raspberries and blackberry liqueur. In the mouth, there is sensational texture, full-bodied intensity, and terrific freshness, precision and vibrancy, despite what is undeniably a massive, rich, intense wine that should age well for another 25-35 years. The 2001s were about as profound as I have ever tasted from Abreu, but the 2002s may be even sexier since they are slightly more evolved. (RP)
