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 92 points (Dec 2008)
The brilliant 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 24 months in French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered tastes like a Sonoma version of a Bordeaux Pauillac. Aromas of cedar, licorice, chocolate, and creme de cassis as well as a hint of toast jump from the glass of this full-bodied, concentrated, fleshy wine. It possesses a French-like structure, but Northern California’s enticingly pure, ripe fruit is on vivid display. This wine can be approached now because of the sweetness of the tannins and its terrific equilibrium, but it will age effortlessly for 15-20 years.

98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc
