Arns Winery Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Arns Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Estate 2003 : NVWE NOTES: Surprisingly forward and already rich in aroma, with appealing zest, this fine Cabernet from the foothills of Howell Mountain boasts aromas of sweet cherry, red licorice, red rose, vanilla and sweet-scented baking spices, over a backdrop of dark earth. It is both supple in texture and well focused on the palate, with lingering flavors of dry cherry, fresh cherry, red licorice, vanilla, earth and a bit of cedar. Despite its early appeal, it should improve for another three years or so, growing ever more elegant in the cellar.ARNS CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY ESTATE 2003

ARNS WINERY is located on the hillside east of the historic City of St. Helena, CA, in the heart of the Napa Valley. The 160 acre parcel sits at an elevation of 800 feet above the valley floor and below the Howell Mountain Appellation. The soil for the nine acre all-Cabernet vineyard is Red Aiken Loam, which was planted in the mid-to-late 1960's. This parcel has a history of grape growing going back into the 1800's. Our wines represent selections from nine different blocks, with clones from Bordeaux and Napa Valley. These vineyard blocks consist of up to 2,900 vines per acre with a vertical shoot positioned trellis. At the present, there is some planting and replanting going on, and in the future our goal of 2,000 cases should be realized. Read less
