Arietta Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$124.99

A fantastic new top Napa Cabernet from Arietta and former Screaming Eagle winemaker Andy Erickson. Limited. 91 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous):  "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a polished, elegant wine. Medium in body, the 2014 graces the palate with bright red stone fruit and floral nuances. The new oak still needs time to integrate, so I would give the 2014 at least another year or two in bottle. It will be interesting to see if the 2014 gains weight in bottle. Today, it is decidedly on the lighter side of things, even within the context of the vintage... ...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."

Poured one glass four days ago, popped in the fridge, and finished tonight. Truly amazing how well it opened up which shows how well it will age. Rich, pretty, and very balanced. All Coombsville fruit.

Big, richly textured Cab, great tannin integration for such a young wine.

Wow, this is already firing on all cylinders. Muted nose, but the expression in the mouth is intense. Superb texture and mouthfeel. Layer after layer of flavors. This is a brilliant 14 example...
