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)
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)
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)
