Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml 2009     
Sku: 1848338

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

This Cabernet Sauvignon is layered and complex, and follows in the tradition we established with our first vintage. From the deep, dark color to the intense aromas of black cherry and cassis, to the mouthwatering flavors of dark berries and crème de cassis, each layer unfolds slowly and deliberately. A small addition of Merlot softens the mouthfeel, while even smaller amounts of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc add spice and complexity to the blend. Reflecting our non-interventionist philosophy, this wine is neither fined nor filtered; aging in French and American oak barrels creates subtle nuances of oak and vanilla that serve as a backdrop for the wine’s forward fruit flavors.

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Apr 2013)
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon packs serious punch. Juicy dark berries, plums, raspberry jam, grilled herbs, tobacco, cedar and sweet spices jump from the glass. The 2009 opens up beautifully with a little air. The style remains hearty and at times a bit rustic, but there is nevertheless plenty to admire here. The 2009 is predominantly Sonoma Valley fruit (85%) and includes a dollop of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. This is an exceptional level of quality for a wine with a production level in excess of 10,000 cases. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.”,,,

Wine maker notes
We find that each growing season is unique, and 1999 was certainly no exception. The season kicked into gear with a long, cold winter, followed by a moderate spring. Bud break came in late March and early April, with bloom complete by mid-June. A cool, dry summer resulted in a rather late harvest, giving the vines extra "hang time" and allowing the grapes to reach optimum ripeness. The end results were wines with deep color and an excellent balance of fruit and tannins. Our 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County is such a wine
