Arietta Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$124.99

A fantastic new top Napa Cabernet from Arietta and former Screaming Eagle winemaker Andy Erickson. Limited. 96+ Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous):  "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is fabulous. Gorgeous, expressive aromatics meld into dark red stone fruits in a Cabernet of pure breed and class. These cool sites in Coombsville yield a Cabernet built on savory aromatics, perfume and depth. There is so much going on in the glass that words prove superficial in trying to describe just how beautiful the 2012 is. Majestic. That might do it... ...This is the finest and most complete set of wines I can remember tasting from Arietta. Proprietor Fritz Hatton and winemaker Andy Erickson seem to have reached a new level of quality with the 2012s and 2013s, both of which are brilliant. This is a fabulous showing from top to bottom."

What happens when you place a well made cab to rest for five years - magic - I had this wine when the wine first came out / it was good but just need some time to mellow - mellow if did - wow this wine is drinking well and a pnp - maybe 5 more years but don’t sit on them for a long time - color out the bottle was deep rich purplish red and swirled in the glass and the smell was delightful- just elegant yet jammy fruits inviting your nose for another deep inhale - the taste was delicious and rich - black and refreshing currants with creamy textures - but the finish was exotic - loved ever 20-30 seconds of it - all smiles last night with my friend @R Bowers

Such an amazing wine - Cabernet Sauvignon is big bold and beautiful- instinctively will be out front and center - fruit and taste and finish My words are badass in a glass and stunning. The smell is so "wig" - look up what it means according to Katy Perry - it is that good - expressive aromatics meld into dark red stone fruits - just plain classy After two hours / savory aromatics, perfume and depth. There is so much going on in the glass that words are not enough I love everything Andy Erickson does and definitely here - bravo - big wide open smile tonight!!!!
