Super complex, wonderfully balanced, and everything we look for in Port-styled wines, the 2012 New-World Port is a wine that can pair with hors d’oeuvres, the main, or dessert (or even later in the evening). Never alcoholic or syrupy-sweet, this is an expression that draws people into loving Port-styled wines. The nose is both a high-toned fruit (raspberry/cranberry) and a wonderfully spicy/herbal character. But it’s the palate that really steals the show. The entry is luscious and rich but then evens out to an elegant layering of dark berry fruit, woodsy spice and complex savory notes. This wine has almost too much complexity for the average palate, but its intriguing embrace of terroir and typicité make it all the more special.
This region of the country is known all over the world for its remarkable Mediterranean climate that produces some of the best wines around. And while we love the wineries closer to the coast, the remote foothill wineries of the Sierra Nevada are unparalleled and off the beaten path. Madroña is a scenic winery in the Apple Hill region that you will fall in love with.
The Madrona wine all started by a pioneer who found an exceptional landscape that is divestible to the hillside vineyard,
which was located in El Dorado, California in 1973. It was
originally founded by the Senior Bush who wanted to create
this unique wine that has great acidity with perfect balance to
create this comfort when drinking the wine. This authentic
wine was discovered from a 350 year old Madrona tree, which
represented the location to grow the best terroir of the Madrona vineyards. These Madrona trees are found in the greatest growing regions through El Dorado, Sierra Foothills
