      Winemaker Notes

      A classic Trockenbeerenauslese style wine with profoundly forward aromas of honey, jasmine, apricot and honeysuckle, enhanced with peach, lime and sandalwood top notes. The concentrated fruit aromas carry over onto the palate, where they develop into flavors of ripe kiwi, pineapple, orange and vanilla cream, followed by a crisp, lingering finish.

      RP 91
      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      More Beerenauslese in style, the 2003 White Riesling Select Late Harvest Hoot Owl Creek Vineyard possesses 14% residual sugar and 9.2% alcohol. Offering abundant quantities of peach and apricot jam-like characteristics, it is fresh, lively, concentrated, pure, and beautifully well-balanced. It should drink well for 4-5 years.

      Arrowood Vineyards & Winery, , California
      Arrowood
      Arrowood is 100% Sonoma. Since 1986, we have been producing high-character wines from sustainably and organically farmed vineyards west of the Mayacamas Ridge. Our winery is located in the historic Sonoma Valley, a small sub-appellation in the heart of the county. Often described as a warm pocket in a cool region, this rolling AVA is particularly well suited to Cabernet Sauvignon, our signature wine. We also produce limited quantities of other noble varieties from some of Sonoma’s acclaimed vineyards.

      Cabernet Sauvignon

      View all wine

      A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

      In the Glass

      High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

      Perfect Pairings

      Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

      Sommelier Secrets

      Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
