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.

Popped the cork and decanted for 2 hours. The wine is a beautiful and very deep ruby red. It's massively big, jammy, hints of berry, spicy and a taste lasting easily a minute plus. The wine is structurally deep, well balanced but it's still a bit young and needs a few more years in the bottle to fully develop. Give this wine a rest and open it in 3 to 5 more years and it will be outstanding. This wine has serious potential to develop into something very special and all it needs is more time to develop. I loved it.

Wow. This is a wonderful blend of blackberry, licorice and spice on the nose and palate. The tannins are just beginning to absorb the fruit at this point. The wine is seamless on the palate and promises to get even better with time.

About This Producer


If you adhere to the premise that great wine begins in the vineyard, then you have to admire the influence David Abreu has had on the ultra-premium wine industry. His impact began in the 1980s when he founded Abreu Vineyards after graduating from the Viticulture and Enology program at UC Davis. His reputation was enhanced through the success of his vineyard management company, and he became one of the most sought-after viticulture consultants. Famous clients include Blankiet, Staglin, Colgin, Bryant, Araujo and many others. His own wines reflect his expert vineyard management skills and innate ability to translate the grapes' excellence into stunning wine. Abreu also produces a proprietary red blend called Rothwell Hyde.
