Winemaker Notes

Quality is more important to us than yields. That commitment shows in this Cabernet Sauvignon, made exclusively with fruit from our estate vines. After painstaking organic farming, we dropped half of our crop to make a wine of power and perfect ripeness from very limited yields. The wine was aged for 18 months in a combination of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels. This dense, concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon displays a wealth of intense black cherry, blackberry, currant and cassis aromas. Silky and seamless on the palate, the wine reveals complex layers of luscious black fruit flavors that meld with oak nuances and polished, ripe tannins throughout a remarkably persistent finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Another stunner is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. This is certainly in keeping with my vintage notes for the retrospective I did of the 2005 vintage for Bordeaux varietals in Northern California in Issue 219. A beautiful wine with sweet black and red currant fruit, licorice and graphite, the wine is big, full-bodied, yet at the same time, pure, elegant, and vigorously fresh and lively. This is a savory wine that builds incrementally on the palate and finishes splendidly. It should drink well for at least another 15-20 years.

Polished and powerful, with lush notes of black cherry, mocha and cinnamon. An excellent wine from a young vineyard.—Non-blind Arrowood tasting (February 2015). Drink now through 2021.

Richard Arrowood is an iconic winemaster who has been making wine exclusively in Sonoma County for more than for 45 years. From 1974 through 1990, he created the wines for Chateau St. Jean, where he developed some of the first vineyard-designate Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon produced in Sonoma County.

He and his wife, Alis, founded Arrowood Winery with the 1985 vintage. Each year, they made extraordinary small-lot varietals and vineyard designates. Richard was the winemaster at Arrowood Winery until June 2010, when he resigned his position to devote himself full-time to making wines for his estate winery, Amapola Creek Vineyards and Winery.
