Winemaker Notes

This deep purple, violet-rimmed wine has an opulent nose of ripe Santa Rosa Plum, rose petal, chocolate covered cherry cordial and stewed rhubarb. Hints of candied orange rind and blueberries lead to soft, yet explosive mouth-filling blackberry, black cherry, molasses, and nutmeg. Clean acidity and focused tannins balance this full-bodied plushness. The long, silky finish leaves traces of violet, black cherry and just a bit of white pepper. Incredibly approachable now, it will also age well into the next 20 years.

Jeb Dunnuck
Cut from the same cloth as the 2014, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon NVD shows the vintage style nicely with its focused, elegant, yet concentrated profile. Black raspberries, toasted spices, cassis and dried earth all emerge from this high-quality, classic, balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that will keep for 15-20 years.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from vineyards on the eastern side of the valley (Calistoga, Howell Mountain, Pritchard Hill and Soda Canyon), the 2015 NVD Cabernet Sauvignon gives up a deep garnet-purple color and fresh, crunchy black berry, plum, wild blueberry and gentle Provence herbs notes with hints of cedar chest and forest floor, plus a touch of Sichuan pepper. Medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of grainy tannins, it delivers loads of lively black and blue fruit, finishing long and earthy.

James Suckling

A ripe and slightly sweet, cabernet-based red with fine vanilla oak, but also generous, supple tannins. Soft but clean finish. Drink now.

Arkenstone Winery Image
We first discovered, and were irretrievably drawn to this unique property in the late 1980’s. For over 20 years we have shared the beauty and mystery of Arkenstone with bear, coyote, mountain lion, rattle snake, scorpion and raptors of all sorts (as well as voracious grape eating wild turkeys). Remnants of native obsidian work, as well as walls made of local stone built during the 1800's, are constant reminders that we are just the latest inhabitants to appreciate and benefit from this land.

Our serious interest in wine and our families’ farming history perhaps made it inevitable that we would think about planting vineyards here. We knew we did not want to clear the site for an “industrial” vineyard but didn’t know whether the effort required of farming the small patches of open space using sustainable practices could be justified. Then, in early 1995, a good friend of ours, who grew up in a Napa Valley wine family and founded her own label, encouraged us. She arranged for an expert who consulted for top vineyards all over the world to come to the Napa Valley to evaluate a number of potential vineyard sites. He included Arkenstone on this visit. Test holes were dug, and on a cloudy wet day we tramped around the property talking about dirt, drainage, exposures, air movement, and, most importantly, the promise of the site. His conclusion was that wine grapes of very high quality could be produced here, and that Arkenstone was indeed a special site. We didn’t then know to say “terroir” but understood that the grapes and the wine from these vineyards could over time become a recognizable expression of our site, climate, farming and winemaking. We decided to make this promise a reality.
