The Australian technique of blending tannic Cabernet with fruity Shiraz works beautifully in this bold California red.
What You Need To Know
This month’s focus on California’s up-and-coming Sierra Foothills region continues with this smalllot bottling from Madroña Vineyards. Founded by Dick and Leslie Bush in 1973 and now run by son Paul and daughter-in-law Maggie, Madroña grows an amazing 27 varieties on 70 acres of vineyards. Their vines dig into lean, rocky soils at 3,000 feet above sea level, amid the rugged peaks. Cold mountain nights help the grapes develop thick skins, producing powerful, tannic Cabernet. Paul Bush, who’s both winemaker and vineyard manager for the small estate, softens the Cab—and bolsters lush Shiraz—in this beautifully calibrated blend.
