Arietta 2016 H Block Hudson Vineyards Cabernet Franc-Merlot (Napa Valley)

Cellar Selection

This is a tremendously memorable and well-made cofermentation of 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot from one specific block of the mighty Hudson Vineyard in Carneros. Reduced slightly, it brims in graphite, earth and dried herb, with classically stylized secondary layers of cassis, lavender, anise and oak. The texture is sublime. Lovely now, this will do well over time; enjoy best from 2026–2036. Virginie Boone
