Final bottle. Good, but not as good as prior bottles. Same notes

PNP, this has an open nose of bright red fruit, earth, and herbs. A tangy acidic wine on the palate with black cherries, plum, earth, cocoa and some drying tannins on the backside. I think 6 more months of sleep and this is even more enjoyable.

Jackson Family Wine Dinner (Olde Greenfield Inn): Really is too young. Big syrah with dark fruit and spices. Tannins are still a little rough.

Picked up 2 bottles of this just recently.....took all our will power not to open the 2nd bottle after tasting the first. Def can use an hour or so of air to fully open and develop......lots of smoke on the nose but nothing but pure, smooth tannins and wonderful velour like cab on the tongue. Well developed fruit, mellow, no leftover alcohol....classic!

Wow! Popped and poured. Initial nose was high in alcohol, but quickly subsided. Perfect balance of oak and fruit after 5 minutes on the nose. Not as heavy or dark as I expected. No bricking on the edges. Tannins completely subsided, leaving smooth oak, cherry finish, medium long. Probably at its peak--will look for more, but only in the next year or so.

Strong cab nose at first, lots of black pepper, also grape. Dense colour; you won't mistake this for Pinot Noir. The flavour is there too, with black pepper again. (It seems I often get black pepper from Cabs.) I do not get mint but I get a little cocoa. Lingering aftertaste is mostly pleasant. 375 ml bottle cost $15. Overall value: 3.5 stars of 5.

Deep garnet in the glass, rum raisin on the nose, bold fruit notes, toasty, black plums, balanced tannins, long finish. Drinking very well.

In the glass: beautiful dark clear purple with no bricking. On the nose: sweet black cherry and tobacco, red licorice and dried grass. On the palate: Silky smooth tannins, dark fruit, poblano pepper, with a medium finish. I don't know how much better it could have been several years ago...probably at peak or just past but a terrific bottle of wine.

Nice wine, but expecting more. Fills the mouth with fruit, but lacking depth for a Reserve.

A light gold color and a very aromatic nose, this comes off as unique and a bit hard to pair with food. VERY floral, then honeysuckle, and stone fruit. Nice texture and length. If I was into white wine I might have to try and play this off different cheeses as it dominated a basic salad with grilled chicken.

At fifteen this was holding its own, and while it won't improve further, its probably at the end of its apex, but still well within the acceptable drinking window, showing the age-ability of Arrowood Cabernets.

This Arrowood was dark garnet colored with bright vibrant cherry, black cherry and plum fruits, with a layer of cedar (a tone that some might refer to a 'mint'), some slightly earthy leather and spice on a tangy spicy modest subdued oak, lingering tannin finish.

4/8/2015 - isaacjamesbaker wrote: 87 points

Blind Cali Cabs & Merlots: Vibrant ruby purple color. Aromas of bright currants and red cherries, some darker berry elements as well, but all the fruit is tangy and alive, backed up by notes of roses, vanilla, charcoal and tobacco. Tangy acid and medium strength tannins provide a good frame for the red and black cherries and tart plum fruit. A clean and bright wine with notes of charcoal, espresso, violets and vanilla add complexity. Really silky and pretty on the finish. Drinking well right now but could develop with some near-term cellaring. Aged 25 months in French and American oak, includes 4% Merlot and 1% Petite Verdot.

Very disappointing. Despite double decanting and many hours of air, the bitter tannins dominate this wine. Too bad.

What a great wine! Lost WON to 90 Arrowood Sonoma but everything one could want in a mature wine. Will continue to look for more, especially at a great price point! Dick Arrowood knew what he was doing.

Wow! Easily one of the best five wines I've ever had. Wish I had more and will look for more. Tannins fully integrated with fruit and oak just right, wine of the night next to a 95 Sonoma and a 95 Reserve Especiale. Holy Cow!

Good from start to finish. Tannins and fruit well integrated, but fruit fading...glad this my last bottle, probable near the end of its good window and this could fall off a cliff at any moment.

other than being just a bit flat on acid this was still a very nice dessert wine. No sign of oxidation and with some decent notes of apricot and peaches the sweetness was still sound and the finish good. It just needed more acid to balance it.

Blind Cali Samples (My Place - Washington, DC): Light gold color. Bold aromatic display, lots of green melon, apricot, lime and bruised yellow apple, but also a nice mix of chalk and honeycomb. Medium bodied, creamy texture is balanced by moderate acid. A nutty approach, like crushed nuts and honey crumbled on top of bruised apples, apricot and honeydew melon, some custard and nougat elements as well. Yet it maintains freshness and finishes clean and bright, with apple blossom and honeysuckle notes. Bold but elegant, interesting and tasty stuff. 10 months in 80% French oak, 17% new.

Very nice, perfectly ripe mixed berry with good mid palate; finishes with a slightly coarse acidity and more oaky tannins than I prefer, making it a bit rustic, and too big for all but the bavette steak; would have guessed this was a younger wine
