Arrow Creek:
Arrow Creek wines capture the spirit of California – the freedom of open spaces, the rustic outdoors and the cherished casual lifestyle. Once the home of wild horses, the cool coastal influence on Arrow Creek ranch now provides perfect growing conditions for producing wines of intense fruit and supple finish.

very light and non descriptive, tastes like colored water with an aftertaste. Not worth the $8.95 which was marked down from over $17.00. Avoid...

I have had two bottles. I enjoy wine, but I am no expert. I hesitated buying the first bottle, because I usually find pinot noir to be thin and delicate, but I decided to go for it because it was $8 marked down from $17. The first bottle was excellent. We were entertaining some out of town friends, and we had a discussion about how excellent it had been. (we tried to buy more, but it was sold out). A week later, I found it in stock and on sale, so I bought 4 bottles. Before opening it I read some reviews, and found most people to not like it. I decided to open a bottle and compare. I'm not sure how much the negative reviews affected me (I would like to think I am good at holding others judgments aside, but alas, I am human) I drank some right after opening it. Not very good. Not bad, but certainly not in the $17/bottle range. More like good box wine range. After 15 minutes in the decanter, it had improved. Pretty dry finish, though. Still not anywhere near what I had remembered from a week before. Maybe it was the beautiful late spring Denver evening, and the good company that made it seem so good the first time. I have to say, unless the other 3 bottles are different, I'm not very happy that I just stocked up, even at $8.
