Arietta Cabernet Sauvignon - 2005(W-991)

Arietta Cabernet Sauvignon
Big Powerful

Winery Story

Rare wine specialist and wine auctioneer Fritz Hatton founded Arietta in 1996 in partnership with winemaker John Kongsgaard and his wife Mag... (more...)gy. The partnership was born of a shared passion for fine wine and classical music. The inspiration for Arietta was an extraordinary 2.3 acre block of Cabernet Franc on the Hudson Ranch in Napa/Carneros. The fruit from this block of Cabernet Franc serves as the core of the Arietta Red Wine (renamed Arietta H Block Hudson Vineyards in the 2000 vintage). The Arietta project grew with the selection of additional superb blocks of Merlot and Syrah on the Hudson Ranch. Now run exclusively by Fritz and Caren Hatton, Arietta continues to produce superb wines under winemaker Andy Erickson.

Tasting Note

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

The story tells little about the flavour of the wine. It only says it is made of perfectly ripe fruit.
