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.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:Our 2005 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, dense and highly aromatic. The nose is saturated with plums, cassis, currants, vanilla, earth and toast. The palate is intense and well supported by finely integrated tannins and balanced acidity. As with many of our Cabernet Sauvignons, this wine drinks beautifully in its youth and should continue to improve over the next decade.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma is the base cuvee of 7,500 cases. It is a delicious, modestly-priced Cabernet offering plenty of tobacco leaf, black currant, licorice, and spice box characteristics, loads of fruit, and subtle notes of white chocolate as well as wood. Consume it over the next 7-8 years.
