Winemaker Notes

With a warm dry spring, consistent summer temperatures and cool sunny weather through out October it was a near perfect growing season in 2013. The 2013 Red Wine is a true Cabernet Franc based blend. This perfumed wine invites with warm spices and lavender. It is fruit focused with ripe fleshy dark cherry, hints of liquor and blueberry. The French oak spices are laced throughout the wine as integrated accent that add layers and allow the fruit to shine. This age worthy wine wraps around the center of the palate and makes a grand exit to a fresh finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There are about 200 cases of the sensational 2013 Proprietary Red, a blend of 73% Cabernet Franc, 18% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and a small dollop of Petit Verdot. It boasts a dense purple color along with notes of acacia flowers, blueberries, black raspberries, forest floor, incense and graphite. This deep, dense, pure, impressively endowed, full-bodied 2013 should drink well for 10-15 years.
Range: (92-94)

James Suckling
A solid and beautiful red with focus and texture. Full body, refined and polished tannins. Dusty mouthfeel. Attractive dark fruits and chocolate powder. Drink or hold.

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.

Red Wine

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.
