ARIETTA 2010 CABERNET SAUVIGNON NAPA VALLEY 750mL

Rare wine specialist and wine auctioneer Fritz Hatton founded Arietta to produced distinctive, singular wines. The highly talented Andy Erickson (Dalla Valle, Screaming Eagle, Ovid, Dancing Hares) was invited to become Arietta’s new winemaker, and worked alongside former partner and winemaker John Kongsgaard for a year before taking the reins in the summer of 2006.

The core of the wine is Cabernet Sauvignon farmed on lower Howell Mountain by renowned Napa vineyard manager David Abreu. The meticulous practices employed by Abreu assure perfectly ripe fruit, and the particular site, soil, and exposure to sun produce a sensationally seductive and expressive wine.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "Andy Erickson has done a great job with these new releases from Arietta. Arietta’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with juicy dark cherries, smoke, crushed flowers and melted road tar. Hints of mocha, espresso and plums develop later, adding a darker register that is highly appealing. Round, supple and totally enveloping, the 2010 should drink beautifully over the next decade, give or take. The 2010 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Meteor vineyard in Coombsville. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."
