  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($115; 100% cabernet sauvignon; from Thorvilos fruit) Good medium ruby. Black fruits, licorice and menthol on the nose. Sweet on entry, then a bit youthfully brutal in the middle, and much less silky and pliant than the young 2005. Today the wine's huge, toothdusting tannins and edgy acids give the finish a somewhat jagged edge. Less impressive today than it appeared to be from bottle a year ago.

    The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon has notes of smoke, licorice, black currant, and sweet plums and spice with a hint of minerality. It has sweet oak and the blend (76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, and 8% Petit Verdot), reveals sweet fruit and mineral notes, tangy acidity, but again just falls short in the finish. It is an impressive wine, but not as good as other releases from Arietta.

  • 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.
