Lot #481. Abreu Proprietary Red Madrona Ranch 1997

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"As I reported last year, the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Madrona Ranch is a perfect Cabernet Sauvignon. It has been in bottle for over a year, and this wine, like all the others, has easily soaked up its aging in 100% new Taransaud barrels. It is a sumptuous, unctuously-textured, fabulously concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon that hits all the sweet spots on the palate, and puts the olfactory senses into overdrive. The wine smells and tastes perfect. It is a compelling effort that one day will be considered part of a small group of elite California Cabernets that may be rewriting the definition of greatness in Cabernet Sauvignon." Wine Advocate #132, Dec 2000
Provenance: The Lancer Cellar
Notes: Nicked label.
