Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 1992

Winemaker's Notes:

The color is deep and youthful. The nose is a mix of ripe dark fruits, cassis, sandalwood and violets. The palate is rich and mouth coating with tannins that are clearly present, yet beautifully integrated. This is a delicious, full-bodied Cabernet that will bring great pleasure over the next decade. Varietal Composition: Cabernet Sauvignon (89.9%), Merlot (7.2%), Malbec (1.6%), Petit Verdot (1.3%) Appellation: Sonoma County Viticultural Areas/Vineyards: Sonoma Valley - Smothers-Remick Ridge Vineyards, Murray Farms, Monte Rosso Vineyard, Lasseter Vineyards, Arrowood Estate Vineyards; Dry Creek Valley - Oddone Vineyards; Alexander Valley - Belle Terre Vineyards, Peterson Ranch Average pH (Harvest/Bottling): 3.4/3.9 Average Total Acid (Harvest/Bottling): .68g per 100ml/.55g per 100ml Aging: Aged predominately in French and American oak barrels for 24 months; unfined, unfiltered. Alcohol by Volume: 15.2%

Arrowood Vineyards & Winery:
The winemaking philosophy at Arrowood is simple: Produce classic varietal wines using grapes exclusively from Sonoma County's diverse viticultural areas such as Russian River Valley, Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys or Sonoma-Carneros. This approach has not changed since the winery was founded in 1986 by Richard Arrowood and his wife and partner, Alis Demers Arrowood. Richard has been making wi... Read more
The winemaking philosophy at Arrowood is simple: Produce classic varietal wines using grapes exclusively from Sonoma County's diverse viticultural areas such as Russian River Valley, Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys or Sonoma-Carneros. This approach has not changed since the winery was founded in 1986 by Richard Arrowood and his wife and partner, Alis Demers Arrowood. Richard has been making wine for more than four decades. Before founding Arrowood, he was winemaker and the first employee at Chateau St. Jean. There he produced the winery's first releases: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and a wine that may have very well put Chateau St. Jean on the map - a Select Late Harvest Riesling. Arrowood Winery opened while Richard was still the winemaker at Chateau St. Jean, and for the first three years Alis ran the winery while Richard fulfilled his obligations at Chateau St. Jean. She dragged hoses in the cellar, topped barrels and ran the bottling line. She spent weekends entertaining, giving tours and hosting wine tastings. The first Arrowood wines were released in 1988.

The superb 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale is the finest Cabernet I have tasted from Dick Arrowood. The opaque purple color is followed by a fragrant nose of cassis and spice full-bodied beautifully delineated concentrated flavors with ripe sweet tannin. The wine needs 2-3 years of cellaring; it should keep for 20+ years. Bravo! Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
