Community Tasting Notes 5
November 14, 2014 - Lovely Bordeaux accents right out of the gate. Cassis, lead pencil and tobacco. After a few hours it suggests a bit of port. What is with the 15.5% alcohol? Time in the decanter should embellish the wine not detract.
13.5% and it is still young. 15.5% and it needs a walker.

May 4, 2014 - This was a nice full bodied napa cab. On its own it was very nice but next to the solari it was in the backseat. This should age for another 5-10 yrs but it is hitting on all cylinders as of now.

August 11, 2013 - I love Sonoma Cabernets. Terrific full-bodied Cabernet with soft tannins. Very good now, but should develop with more time.

June 7, 2013 - Nice wine. A little tannic at first. 2 hours of air, tannins integrate themselves. Needs a little more bottle time. Very well balanced. Soft lingering finish 1 minute+. Best Arrowood Reserve I have ever tasted! Not as complex as I wished, but great Calif cab.

September 3, 2012 - Very good Cab with a lot of depth. A nice dark cranberry in color with notes of tobacco, tar, and dark fruit on the nose. Nice texture in the mouth and on the palate tastes of tobacco, graphite, currants, and tar with a long finish of some subtle tannins. The wine doesn't have a lot of wow factor to it but it is still an excellent well made wine that does't disappoint.1 person found this helpful Comment
