The 2003 Madroña Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is an exemplary Cabernet Sauvignon from high elevation vineyards in the El Dorado region of California's Sierra Nevada Foothills. This refined, elegant, and well balance Cabernet Sauvignon won a Gold Medal at the Critics Challenge in San Francisco, plus a Silver Medal at the Taster's Guild Wine Competition. An additional Silver Medal was awarded at the San Francisco International Wine Competition and a third Silver Medal was won at the Amador County Fair Wine Competition.

A bountiful bouquet of herbed green olives, fresh oregano, and anise fill the glass while deeper aromas of cranberry, plum, and cherry cola follow, with a hint of toasty oak and vanilla. The palate is equally intriguing from start to finish; cherry, dark chocolate and raspberry fruit greet the notes of black currant that flow into the lingering finish. This Cabernet Sauvignon is ready to enjoy with your favorite steak and will improve with time.
