Arrowood Chardonnay Sonoma County Cuvée Michel Berthoud 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Wine Spectator: Beautifully crafted, smooth, rich and polished, with a fine core of spicy, cedary, mocha-scented oak marrying nicely with ripe currant, anise, black cherry and finishing with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2012. 1,558 cases made. (8/31/03)

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.

...fairly tannic wine with a solid core of blackberry, cherry and herb flavors. Although the tannins are soft in the modern way, it's best after 2005... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1999 Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale 750ml
