08' Abreu Madrona Ranch. Medium plus sediment. Decanted this at 1:30 in the afternoon. I tried it every hour... consumed it at 8:30. This is a baby. 25+ years in it.

08' Abreu Madrona Ranch. Had it open for 4 + hours. Needs more time in the bottle. It was better than last year.

Deep and dark ruby red. Super dark and complex spices and fruits. Moderate tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Long and lingering.

Decanted 12 hours. Awesome but a hint behind the 2001 on the body and finish.

Decanted for an hour at home, rebottled, put the cork back in it, carried to the restaurant, and decanted again. Near perfection. The fruit is palatable but not overpowering. This is a big boy for sure, but just the right thing for a birthday celebration at a steak restaurant.

Cedar and cherries on the nose with a plate of dark cherries and berries with cocoa and mocha on the finish. Super silky smooth with sweet but formidable tannins that go on and on. If tannins moderate but fruit stays big this can be an amazing wine in a few years
