Of particular note is the incredibly rich middle of our Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon: concentrated, fleshy and unctuous, complemented by elegant aromatic components and softness.

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.
