Madroña In The Mountains On THE VARIETAL SHOW

Climbing the Sierra Nevadas, one does not often think of growing wine. But that is just what some Gold Rush settlers planted in this historical Zinfandel region. Stepping in the footsteps of these pioneers, Paul Bush and his family started Madroña Vineyards & Winery 50 years ago. Their celebration at 3000 feet elevation, overlaps the 40 Year Anniversary of its AVA, El Dorado. THE VARIETAL SHOW reminisces and discovers their unique Nebiolo 2019, Syrah 2019 Signature, Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Signature and in closing with a classic 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon!
