Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale 2005

Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale 750ML 2005     
Sku: 17184

Every few years, when the collaboration between winemaking and terroir is near perfection, we are able to produce a Reserve Speciale Cabernet Sauvignon. It is our signature wine composed of our finest barrels and fruit from neighboring vineyards in Sonoma Valley. Lush, layered, and complex, this wine captures the fingerprint of the variety, the character of the terroir, and our finest representation of the vintage.

Tasting notes
Rich, enticing, and complex from the first swirl, this wine opens with aromatics of black cherry, black berry, toast, and creme de cassis. These notes gracefully introduce the palate with a harmonious blend of plump berry fruits, notes of cedar, and well-integrated tannins on the long, lingering finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Jun 2015)
A beautiful wine made by Dick Arrowood, it includes four sources for this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 30 months in a combination of primarily French (80%) and the rest American oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this wine, coming from four Sonoma Valley vineyards (Smothers-Remick Ridge, Murray, Monte Rosso and Lasseter) has a dense ruby/purple color, a youthful nose of cedar wood, vanilla, blackcurrants, licorice and graphite. It is full-bodied and ripe, with beautifully sweet tannin, adequate acidity and impressive purity, length and richness. Combining both power and elegance, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for another 12-15+ years.
