Current Releases And Library Wines

  • V Madrone 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon 750 ML (680 Cases) (Library)

    The V Madrone 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful, complex and late developing wine with initial aromas of black cherry, allspice and chocolate followed by an extremely long lasting finish. It possesses a firm core of hillside fruit tannins that soften upon aeration. This wine was aged 22 months in spicy and subtle French oak (90%) and the more vibrant and edgy American oak (10%). It was racked five times in the barrel, allowing clarity and oxygenation to progress naturally. No fining nor filtration was utilized prior to bottling this expressive and ageworthy wine in August, 2008.
  • V Madrone 2009 Cabernet (700 Cases)

    Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of red wines and the 2009 V Madrone is a prime example. Black fruits, olive wood, and mocha are initial aromas. Satsuma plum, wet limestone and toasted cedar contribute to the character on the nose and the palate. It has a powerful entry, an intense mid-palate and an extremely long finish which will enthrall and excite the senses.
  • V Madrone 2010 Cabernet (681 Cases)

    The 2010 vintage will be remembered as the second in a row of four, Bordeaux-like harvests. This Cabernet has an opaque, deep ruby color. It has an excellent nose of crushed Satsuma plum, wet forest floor, roasted hazelnuts, mocha and lilacs. On the palate, the entry is deep and brooding with Italian cherry preserves, wet shale, sage, violets and boysenberry and blackberry. It has a long and lingering finish and will show more layers with aeration.
  • 2010 V Madrone Horseshoe Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (49 Cases)

    The 2010 V Madrone Horseshoe Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is opaque and densely hued dark ruby/purple.

Blackberries and currant jam are mixed with roasted walnuts, light smoke and toast from the French oak and a long, lingering, crème caramel finish.
  • Triquetra III Cabernet Sauvignon (24 Cases)

    The multi-vintage (2009-11)Triquetra III is a singular and unique expression of land, exposure and varietal.

Aromas are sweet and heady, as they fill the glass with fruit, spice and sage, tobacco leaf and cardamom. Upon tasting, there is a delicious entry of seamless perfection and balance of fruit, spice, supple tannins, sweet oak and incredible depth of character all wrapped up in a core of texture and elegance.
