Winemaker Notes

This expression of pure Cabernet is youthful and sweet. Built to develop with time, this wine has blueberries, blackberries and cherries as baked into a rich pie. It's aromatic with notes of vanilla, anise and clove. A floral touch of fresh black pepper adds aromatic diversity. It's inky yet well balanced and long. Slight dusty character and subtle notes of black tea are reminiscent of California's cabernet growing legacy of which this historical vineyard is a cornerstone.

Wow. Such character and style to this Dr. Crane with lavender, rosemary, flowers and sage as well as dark blueberries. Yet always reserved and focused. Full-bodied, ultra-refined and super long on the finish. A triumph. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
More blackberry and cassis fruit are present in the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard. The wet gravel minerality component has not yet emerged, but I’m sure it will as it has done so in every effort that comes from this vineyard source. It offers a deep opaque ruby/purple color with a confiture of blue and black fruits (mostly black), licorice, subtle toast and a long, full-bodied, opulent finish. It will age easily for 15+ years.
Range: 91-93

Arrow&Branch proprietors Steve and Seanne Contursi share a great love for the wines of Bordeaux, particularly those produced with a large quantity of Cabernet Franc, such as Chateau Cheval Blanc. The couple began their romance while traveling through Bordeaux in the mid 1980's, and have since found their dreams come true in being able to live and make wine in Napa Valley. They sought out their Coombsville vineyard property with an eye to producing top-quality Bordeaux blend wines from Napa Valley. The Contursi family lives in Laguna Beach and bought the Arrow&Branch Estate Vineyard in November 2007. Etude Wines founder Tony Soter, a renowned Napa Valley winemaker and prominent wine consultant, previously owned the organic vineyard property. The vineyard was the source of Soter's renowned and highly rated "Little Creek" Cabernet Franc. The Contursi's have maintained the organic farming and, through their work with the detail-oriented Viticulturalist Mike Wolf, are continually improving this wonderful vineyard site.

One of the rising stars of Napa Valley winemaking, Jennifer Williams, was named Winemaker for Arrow&Branch in April 2011. Jennifer takes the reigns at Arrow&Branch from Winemaker extraordinaire, Helen Keplinger, who recently accepted the winemaking position at Bryant Family Vineyards. After years of working with and learning from legendary winemakers such as Rosemary Cakebread, Francoise Peschon and the Novak family, Jennifer now brings her outstanding talents and experience to Arrow&Branch.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all products

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 wines. 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.
