    The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Madrona Ranch is a strikingly superb Cabernet Sauvignon. Although it includes 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot in the blend, I would never have guessed that. Aged in 100% new Taransaud barrels (as are all Abreu's wines), this wine boasts an opaque purple color, in addition to a fabulous bouquet of blueberries, blackberries, cassis, licorice, minerals, and smoky, toasty oak. The wine's aromatics soar from the glass, and in the mouth, the bouquet's promise is fulfilled. A thick, juicy, black fruit character comes across in cascades of fruit, glycerin, and extract. All of this has been buttressed by sweet tannin and good acidity. A voluptuously-textured, blockbuster, yet remarkably harmonious wine, it is one of the finest efforts of the vintage.

    Amazing stamina...really opened up after 2 hrs post decanting. Amazing forward fruit, deep structure, a true classic cab, sad it was my last one, but what the heck, it was christmas!

    Blind tasted with a selection of 1995 Bordeaux, including Lafite, Margeaux, Mouton-Rothschild, Grand-Puy Lacoste, Ducru and Calon-Segur. Abreu won. All the wines were wonderful except the Lafite which seemed corked to all of us. All were open about 2 hours in advance of tasting and all probably needed at least 2 hours more to be drinking well at the outset. Lots of time left on these wines...

    Dark purple in color. This is drinking nicely, but clearly past its peak. Dark fruit, soft tannin and almost no acidity. Medium finish.

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.
