Abreu’s 2011 Proprietary Red Madrona Ranch is all about balance. Firm, focused tannins provide the backdrop for expressive floral and red-toned nuances. At times a bit delicate for an Abreu wine, the 2011 Madrona Ranch stands out for its focus and delineation. It will be interesting to see where this goes over the coming year. Anticipated maturity: 2021-2031.
