ARIETTA 2011 PROPRIETARY RED "H BLOCK" CARNEROS 750mL

The 2011 Arietta Red Wine H Block Hudson Vineyards, Arietta's "eldest child" and best known red wine, returns to the fold after a year-long sabbatical. Beginning with the 2011 vintage, Merlot from the adjacent Hudson I Block joins the Cabernet Franc from the celebrated H Block on the Hudson Ranch on the Napa side of Carneros, and provides an especially juicy core to the wine. This year's blend is 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Franc.

ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "Proprietor Fritz Hatton and winemaker Andy Erickson have done a fabulous job with these wines, the 2011 reds in particular. Sweet red berries, tobacco, mint, licorice and a host of savory notes are woven throughout the 2011 H Block Hudson Vineyards, a Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend. The 2011 is soft and inviting, with a focus on nuance rather than size. My impression is that the 2011 is built for near-term drinking, but like all of Arietta's reds in this challenging vintage, the H Block stands out for its sense of balance."
