Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($115) Deep ruby-red. Sappy black cherry, roast coffee, tobacco, mocha and brown spices on the nose. Densely packed and suave, with fruit so sweet that one could easily enjoy this wine right now. Wonderfully lush, layered cabernet, finishing with very fine, building tannins.

Kongsgaard and Hatton are now experimenting with Cabernet Sauvignon, primarily from the David Abreu and Ric Foreman-owned vineyard of Thorevilos. The medium to full-bodied, monolithic 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits impressive weight, richness, and character. It offers aromas and flavors of spicy earth, toast, black currants, and coffee. Give it 2-3 more years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 15+.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
