Winemaker Notes

Aromatically complex and inviting, the 2009 Arrow&Branch Red Wine exhibits notes of sandalwood, perfume, and black pepper. Boasting incredible color, the nose is harmoniously fruity and floral, reminiscent of rose hips and olallieberry jam. A compelling vein of rich, moist loam and dried porcini winds into the palate. Here earth gives way to fruit and we find ripe cherries and sweet, dark cassis. The wine is agile on the tongue; ample, fresh and lithe. The judicious use of oak ensures an attractive spice, toast, and vanillin that dance about the wine. Primarily Cabernet Franc, it is a classic, medium to full bodied beauty that can be enjoyed upon release and will improve over the next 8-10 years.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
Combines ripe plum and blueberry character with touches of cedar and tobacco. Deep and persistent, with a foundation of earth-laced tannins. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Best from 2014 through 2024.

Arrow & Branch Winery Image
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.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
