The 2018 Madrona Ranch is stunning in its beauty. The aromatics alone are mesmerizing, as is the wine’s transparency. Dried flowers, licorice, lavender and leather lend striking fragrant dimension. More than anything else, the 2018 impresses for its textural finesse and overall elegance, qualities that were rarely found in the Madrona Ranch a few years ago, when the wines were much more extracted and tannic.
