Winemaker's Notes:

This is a beautiful deep purple and ruby colored wine with incredible depth and flavor. While the nose is complex, with blackberry and plum fruit, spice and notes of cedar in the background, on the palate, the wine spills over with rich blackberry and cherry fruit flavors and cassis. The toasty oak and spice flavors combine to provide a wonderfully pleasing finish.
My Notes:

About Arrowood Vineyards & Winery:

Richard and Alis Arrowood founded Arrowood Winery in 1987 with a philosophy of making wines of singular and exceptional quality, using grapes grown exclusively in Sonoma County. Richard continually explores the diversity of Sonoma County, working with mostly the same grape growers he began cultivating in 1974, as Winemaster at Chateau St. Jean Winery. Arrowood is known for making small lots of benchmark Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, Merlot, Viognier and Syrahs, among other varietals.
