ARNS CABERNET ESTATE '14
Arns Cabernet Sauvignon “Estate” Howell Mountain, Napa Valley 2014
NVWE Notes: This knockout Cab brilliantly represents the richness and intensity of its great vintage and the purity and class of this property’s “old vine” fruit. The nose is a juicy perfume of red currant jam, Italian Maraschino cherry syrup, sweet dark cherry and black currant fruit supported by luxurious sweet-savory scents of pink and black peppercorn, unrefined date sugar, coffee toffee, espresso bean, dark tobacco and cedar. It is plush and supple on the palate, yet firm and racy due to a combination of piquant fruit and polished tannins. The finish is long, deep, elegantly rich and already very satisfying. Expect this beauty to grow ever more lovely for the next eight years and beyond. 410 cases made.
