2013 Arns Winery Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Arns Winery is another fine example of a powerfully restrained, still young wine with tons of potential. I "Drink The Bottles" when I get them, so unfortunately, sometimes I miss out what are probably the best years of many stellar wines. I think that is the case here with the 2013 Estate Grown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Arns Winery. This wine has a gorgeous, sexy black color and a depth that you can see and feel. Layers of chocolate cake, tobacco leaf, spicy paprika, and cherry cola marry with ease on the nose and in the mouth. I feel like this wine has so much more to offer and the flavors will explode out of the glass in the next 3-5 years. But who can wait?? This is a wine that is very tasty now, but will probably bring tears of joy to your eyes if you hold onto it and save it for that special occasion or special someone in the not-so-near future. With only 300 cases produced, you better grab this quickly!
