Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County Réserve Spéciale 2006
Every few years, when the collaboration between winemaking and terroir is near perfection, we are able to produce a Réserve Spéciale Cabernet Sauvignon. It is our signature wine composed of our finest barrels and fruit from neighboring vineyards in Sonoma Valley. Lush, layered, and complex, this wine captures the fingerprint of the variety, the character of the terroir, and our finest representation of the vintage. The 2006 Réserve Spéciale features fruit from four of the finest benchland and mountain sites in Sonoma Valley: Lasseter Vineyards, Monte Rosso Vineyard, Murray Ranch Vineyard, and Smothers-Remick Ridge Vineyards. These vineyards produce fruit with weight and concentration, allowing for extended aging in French and American oak barrels.
