Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2001
"Red Wine Cabernet Sauvignon by Arrowood from Sonoma County, California. This wine makes an outstanding first impression, with its vibrant ruby color and distinctive aromas. Forward blackberry flavors stand out against an earthy backdrop of saddle leather, cigar box and cedar. Perfectly balanced with a luscious, velvety... "
Decanted 1 hour. Deep dark color. Super crimson. The nose reveals casis, currant, cocoa and blackberry. The palate is a super pure core of medium dark fruit. Maybe a bit high on the acid, but this does not detract as much as it usually would. Great mouthfeel and tannin level. This all comes together at the end in a decent finish which may show a wee bit heat. It is a good deal for $18 for 1/2 bottle. WIll be fantastic with 18 months to 2 years age on it.Another great Cabernet from Arrowood in a great year. I will stock up as it's the perfect wine when I am in the 'don't know what I want' mood. 90
