Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Arns Cabernet is very elegant with a deep, dark purple color. The fleshy and refined tannins can be tasted in the mouth, covered by juicy fruit tones of black cherry, licorice, chocolate, and cedar. 2012 is a fantastic year for production so there is a little more to offer. For the best tasting experience, decant and enjoy.

James Suckling
A subtle and beautiful Napa cabernet with currants, walnuts and hints of hazelnuts. Medium body, a solid core of fruit and a fresh finish. Drink or hold.

Arns Winery Image
The Arns property was homesteaded in the late 1880’s by a fellow from Germany. The second owner was a stone mason who did very creative plaster work in homes and caves throughout the Valley. He built the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, Ca from stones quarried from the property. There is a long history of Zinfandel grapes grown from the previous owners. The Arns family purchased this parcel in the late 1950’s as a retreat for their family. John Arns, along with his brother, Steve, have kept the tradition of grape growing here at Arns. John Arns and Sandi Belcher developed Arns Winery after years of selling grapes to local wineries.

The Winery is located on the hillside east of the historic City of St. Helena, CA, in the heart of the Napa Valley. The 160 acre parcel sits at an elevation of 800 feet above the valley floor and below the Howell Mountain Appellation. The soil for the ten acre all-Cabernet vineyard is Red Aiken Loam, which was planted in the mid-to-late 1960’s. The wines represent selections from ten different blocks, with clones from Bordeaux and the Napa Valley.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
