Arrowood Chardonnay Sonoma County Cuvée Michel Berthoud Réserve Spéciale 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 94 Selected from the finest lots, the brilliant 2007 Chardonnay Reserve Speciale is a superb offering. It displays deep, rich honeysuckle notes intermixed with notions of nectarines, orange blossoms, butterscotch, vanilla, white peaches, baked apples, and pears. This complex Chardonnay should drink well for 4-5 years. Wine Tasting Notes Our Reserve Speciale has a commanding bouquet of citrus, vanilla and creme brulee. The palate is richly concentrated, but still agile and balanced. The finish is long, structured and pure.

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.

WA 94pts - Winemaker Notes - We believe that our finest wines are those that best reflect their terroir, or the vineyards in which they were grown. The grapes for this fresh, full-bodied wine were grown in the Alta Vista Vineyards located in the Sonoma-Los Carneros region. The region's distinctive cool climate allows for grapes to ripen slowly giving them more time to develop flavors. The region's cool climate also tends to produce Chardonnay grapes with higher acidity. The resulting wines are often a vibrant fruit experience with a crisp finish.
