Current Releases And Library Wines

  • V Madrone 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 750 ML (600 Cases)

    The 2012 V Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon is a delicious wine of the highest varietal character and flavor.  It is deep ruby-purple in hue and has an elegant, yet powerful entry of blackberry, cassis reduction, fresh sage, vanilla creme, toasted French oak and sweet cherry liqueur.  Intensely varietal and complex, this wine exhibits all the best of a complete wine and complement for many dishes including Prime New York strip steak, Portobello mushroom ragout pasta and Fresh Pecorino cheese.  It will age well for up to two decades and will improve with aeration and decanting.
  • 2011 V Madrone Horseshoe Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (50 Cases)

    The 2011 Horseshoe Vineyard Cabernet is an exceptional wine with a combination of powerful fruit and subtle notes of elegance.  It has a beautiful dark ruby/purple color which is opaque and densely hued.  Initial aromas of cassis, blackberry malt, holiday spice, crushed wet stones, soy and whole tobacco leaf, rich toasted oak and vanilla bean.  On the palate, the dark fruit is center stage, with elements of oak, spice and forest floor in the background.  It will be at its prime within the next seven to ten years, but will age well for upwards of two decades. It will pair well with Kobe Beef Filet Mignon, Pecorino Romano and Chocolate Mousse Torte.  
  • Triquetra IV Cabernet Sauvignon (44 Cases)

    The multi-vintage Triquetra IV is a unique combination of a single barrel of 2011 Cabernet from the Northwest corner of the VMadrone vineyard embraced with luscious amounts of the 2010 and 2012 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon to form a singular and unique expression of land, exposure and varietal.   Triquetra IV was aged for over three years in two, unique French oak barrels combining the best elements of barrel bouquet with Cabernet aromas of decadent blackberry fruit cobbler with a whole wheat crust combined with aromas of roasted walnuts, fresh forest floor, wet granite, steamed espresso, malt, ripe orange rind and rose petals.  The entry is plush and full, with congruent themes of black fruit including blackberries and blueberry preserve, Belgian chocolate and freshly produced toffee. The mid-palate is round and lively, with substance and power, while the finish is pure hedonism:  soft, silky tannins combined with a lingering fruit/creme/toasted oak balance of flavor.   It is a celebration in a glass and destined to be one of supreme ageworthiness, with restrained power, pedigree and elegance all combined in a  bottle.  It will age well for up to 18 years and peak by 2025.
  • V Madrone 2014 Carneros Chardonnay 750 ML (450 Cases)

    V Madrone Carneros Chardonnay is known for tropical character, citrus notes and great depth of flavor.  2014 provided a beautiful season to grow excellent Chardonnay in the Mueller vineyard in Carneros where V Madrone sources its fruit is  one of the oldest and most reliable for excellent Chardonnay production.   This Chardonnay spent 16 months in small, tight-grained French oak barrels prior to bottling in March of 2016.  Stirred weekly, the “battonage” elevates the yeast to add creaminess, textural character and fresh bread aromas to the otherwise jasmine, star fruit, tangerine zest and meyer lemon aromas in the nose.  The palate is rich, ripe and round, with enough zesty clean acidity to balance the vanilla, sweet cream and light beurre blanc flavors.  It is one of the most complete Chardonnays produced and will prove to be ageworthy for up to ten years.
  • V Madrone 2013 Petite Sirah Old Vines 750 ML (250 Cases)

    The 2013 V Madrone Petite Sirah Old Vines is dark, brooding and delicious.  It has heady aromas of plums and violets and excellent depth and texture.  Aromas of black fruit and spice integrate well with coconut, dark chocolate and forest floor on the palate.  It will pair well with full flavored prime cuts of beef and lamb, chanterelle pasta and aged Gouda.  Decant or aerate while young and enjoy in the near term or until the wine peaks in 2022. 
  • V Madrone 2014 Zinfandel Old Vines 750 ML (550 Cases)

    The 2014 V Madrone Zinfandel Old Vines comes from an old vine vineyard in St. Helena on the valley floor which was planted circa 1923 in St. Helena.  We lovingly hand harvest the fruit and gently destem it to retain all of the varietal flavor that these venerable vines deserve.  Resting in a combination of new and once used French oak barrels, the wine takes on a characteristic spice and texture that is evident in the nose.  However, the overlying aromas and flavors  are of raspberries, strawberry and brambly goodness.  This is a delicious and versatile wine that will compliment many dishes including beef brisket, tri-tip roast, mesquite barbequed chicken and even coq au vin.
