2011 Abreu Madrona Ranch  (Napa Valley) 94
Drinking at its peak, the wine is medium-bodied, fresh, polished, earthy, vibrant, and floral. Clearly, this is not the most concentrated, or ripe vintage. But it is perhaps the most elegant, and that is not pejorative. No decanting needed. Just pop, pour and enjoy all the blackberries, black plums, black cherries, earthy, forest, and chocolate-toned nuances. Drink from 2022-2032.

When to Drink Abreu Vineyards, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Abreu Vineyards is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. Young vintages can be decanted for 1-3 hours, depending on the character of the vintage. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Serving Abreu Vineyards with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips
