Madrigal Napa Valley Cabernet 2013 – $14.99 at the Grocery Outlet

I purchased the Madrigal Napa Valley Cabernet 2013 at the Redwood City Grocery Outlet on Saturday, September 15, 2018. This is a sleeper Napa Valley Cabernet. Little is known about the Madrigal Family Winery compared to the elite wineries of the Napa Valley. The winery is small and family owned. The Madrigal winery is on Highway 29 midway between St. Helena and Calistoga, a very busy stretch of many wineries and tasting rooms. The Madrigal Winery is a fantastic success story of the little guy making it in the Napa Valley. See more below on the history of Madrigal.

I checked the winery’s online wine shop and they are selling this same wine for $52. See the link.  Why the Grocery Outlet has this wine at this price, while the winery is still offering the same wine at $52, is a mystery. Often, if a distributor cannot move the wine, they will dump it and take a loss just to move things along. 2013 is considered at this point an older vintage. Napa Valley Cabernets are age-worthy and this one will age for several years. It is quite drinkable now. The 2013 Napa Valley Cabs are considered to be an excellent vintage.

Madrigal Napa Valley Cabernet 2013 is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cab comes from three Napa Valley locations: Madrigal Estate, Atlas Peak, and Howell Mountain. The remained of the wine is 12% Estate Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 4% Cab Franc and 4% Malbec. A Bordeaux-style wine indeed! The flavors are rich and with an elegant and robust mouthfeel. It is polished and complex. I rate it at 90 Points. Check to see if your Grocery Outlet has the wine. Buy a bottle and sample quickly. If you like this bargain, buy as much as you can and age it.

More on the Madrigal Family Winery

The Madrigal Family Winery is one of several amazing success stories of a Mexican Family migrating to the Napa Valley. It all began in the 1930’s when the Madrigals came to California to work the orchards. Second generation Jess Madrigal formed a vineyard management company and later purchased vineyards. Today the Madrigal winery is managed by Chris Madrigal, son of Jess.
