Winemaker's Notes:

From a resoundingly successful Napa red wine vintage, this is the most critically acclaimed Arietta produced to date. Cabernet Franc (60%) from the Hudson H Block was co-fermented with Merlot (40%) from the Hudson N Block. The wine is brooding, seductively deep and rich, and beautifully shaped. It has yet to emerge from hibernation, and will have a long evolution—at least ten years. Best to wait a couple of years, at least, if you can. (500 cases)
