2008 Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County

Wine Description

We find that each growing season is unique, and 1999 was certainly no exception. The season kicked into gear with a long, cold winter, followed by a moderate spring. Bud break came in late March and early April, with bloom complete by mid-June. A cool, dry summer resulted in a rather late harvest, giving the vines extra "hang time" and allowing the grapes to reach optimum ripeness. The end results were wines with deep color and an excellent balance of fruit and tannins. Our 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County is such a wine

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) This wine makes an outstanding first impression, with its vibrant ruby color and distinctive aromas. Forward blackberry flavors stand out against an earthy backdrop of saddle leather, cigar box and cedar. Perfectly balanced with a luscious, velvety mouth feel, mature tannins, formidable structure and long, oak-sweetened finish.
