2010 Vintage celebrates 18 years of continuous winemaking here at ARNS. We take great pride in our vineyards which are groomed by our viticulturist, John Arns. Our vineyard/winery sits just below Howell Mt in a unique micro-climate and geological profile. The individuality of this site has set the stage for our Cabernets unique distinct flavors of flint, tobacco, chocolate, black cherries, violets and anise. We are very pleased to follow our style and see consistency in flavor profiles over these years. We are elated with our 2011 and 2012 vintages that are showing the same complex aromas , buoyant mid palate and a hearty long, elegant finish. We treasure the longevity of our wines and are pleased with comments coming to us about the "amazing, great 1993's, etc."
"The great appeal of Arns Estate Grown Cabernet is its vivid purity of flavor. It is not necessarily a simple wine, but there's not a box of trickery or gratuitous filigree involved - just a straight forward reflection of the power in their vineyards. Sandi Belcher talks about their wines saying, 'we keep it pure and straight forward in a complex manner." - excerpt from a letter of a fan
