Winemaker Notes

The wines are a reflection of the stalwart nature of the Arietta vineyard blocks: overtly aromatic, richly textured, and packed with generous black fruit flavors. The dry conditions of the 2015 growing season only helped to concentrate and accentuate the expressive nature of the wine.

Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot.

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling
Another beautiful cabernet sauvignon expression with slate and tons of blue fruit such as blueberries and brambleberries, not to mention bark, moss, forest floor and blackcurrant leaf. There's so much fresh fruit on the palate, which is full and lithe with velvety tannins and a tight finish. A blend of 91% cabernet sauvignon, 6% cabernet franc, 3% petit verdot.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep garnet-purple color with a nose of cassis and black cherries plus hints of dusty soil, sautéed herbs and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied and soft, velvety and approachable in the mouth, it has plenty of generous fruit and great length.

Jeb Dunnuck
From the cooler Coombsville region of the valley, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot) is a structured, backward wine that's locked and loaded with notions of plums, blueberries, violets and scorched earth/charcoal-like nuances. Medium to full-bodied, dense and compact on the palate, it has plenty of tannins as well as plenty of fruit. It just needs cellaring.

The Arietta project is owned and run by the Kongsgaard and Hatton families. John Kongsgaard, winemaker, is a fifth generation Napan, but the first in his family to make wine. Kongsgaard has grown grapes since 1975 and made wine professionally since 1979, notably for thirteen vintages at Newton and five at Luna, as well as looking after numerous clients as a viticultural and enological consultant. Since founding Arietta and Kongsgaard in 1996, he has limited wine production to that which he can make with his own hands. In 2000, Kongsgaard stopped all consulting activities, devoting himself solely to twenty-eight acres of vineyard and the resulting Arietta and Kongsgaard wines.

Fritz Hatton is the nation's foremost wine auctioneer. He worked for Christie's for most of the last two decades and was in charge of Christie's U.S. wine auctions from 1995 to 1998. In the spring of 2002, Hatton joined the prominent retailer, Zachy's, as auctioneer and consultant to Zachy's Auctions, Inc. He serves as principal auctioneer for the Napa Valley Wine Auction and conducts numerous other charity wine auctions across the U.S. Hatton is responsible for the sales and distribution of the Arietta and Kongsgaard wines and shares the marketing duties with Kongsgaard.

The partners came together through their love of music. Fritz is a serious amateur pianist and singer, and the Kongsgaards present a ten concert classical music series in Napa. Their friendship in music is reflected in the Arietta wine label: Beethoven's manuscript of the sublime Arietta movement of his last piano sonata, Opus 111.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
