Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93(+?)

Full ruby. Scented nose of blueberry, graphite, licorice and wild herbs, with a slight medicinal quality I associate with this vintage. Dense, sweet and fat, with superb depth of flavor and compelling sweetness. Finishes with big, tongue-dusting tannins. Less obvious today than the 2000 but this has terrific structure and potential.

About This Producer


Not quite a newcomer, in terms of the powers behind it, Arietta was founded in 1996 as a partnership between renowned winemaker John Kongsgaard, his wife Maggy, and wine auctioneer Fritz Hatton. The Hudson Ranch (Napa/Carneros) provides the mostly Cabernet Franc of H Block and the Merlot and Syrah of Variation One. Make sure to try some of their first foray into the realm of white On The White Keys which is made from hillside Sauvignon Blanc and old vine Semillon.
