      Winemaker Notes

      This Beerenauslese-styled 2008 Select Late Harvest Riesling contains 21.61 grams of residual sugar. Complex aromas of honey, apricot, white peach, and orange peel carry over onto the palate with a clean viscous mouthfeel. The noticeable sweetness is entirely balanced by a crisp acidity in the finish.

      We expect this wine to age gracefully for many years to come. You can enjoy it alone or match it with peaches, pumpkin, apples, or pears in your favorite configuration. Consider offsetting tastes, like sharp cheese. You can also think about pouring it over ice cream. All possibilities are hedonistic.

      A great success for this bottling. With extraordinarily high residual sugar, the wine is very sweet in wild honey, infused with the essence of oranges and apricots, folded into rich, buttery custard, and sprinkled with vanilla sugar and cinnamon. It's all balanced with a squirt of lime acid. If that sounds good, it is. Only 95 cases were produced, but finding this wine is worth a search.

      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      As I have written before, for over 40 years Dick Arrowood has been a reference point for high quality, world-class Auslese, Beerenauslese, and Trockenbeerenauslese-styled sweet Rieslings from California. His 2008 Special Select Late Harvest Riesling Saralee's Vineyard, made in a Beerenauslese style, reveals wonderful apricot and peach marmalade notes intertwined with hints of maple syrup, lychee nuts, buttered apples, and shortbread. As always, this cuvee possesses terrific acidity as well as outstanding concentration. While it is almost impossible to resist at present, this 2008 will last an incredibly long time.

      Arrowood is 100% Sonoma. Since 1986, the winery has been producing high-character wines from sustainably and organically farmed vineyards west of the Mayacamas Ridge. The winery is located in the historic Sonoma Valley, a small sub-appellation in the heart of the county. This rolling AVA is particularly well-suited to Cabernet Sauvignon, Arrowood's signature wine.
