The 2012 vintage of the Arns Estate Grown Cabernet marks the 20th anniversary of this complex wine being made. Our uncompromising winemaking style, healthy vine maintenance, and two consistent decades of grape growing, have led to this deeply reflective wine. A wine should tell the story of the soil, sun and climate in which it grows and this wine embodies the true spirit of what our vineyards had to offer.
Surrounded by the curves of the mountain above, in a sea of ancient rocks and resting on a deep runoff of rich, Red Aiken Loam soils, our vines provided a striking expression of the terroir year after year. With notes of bold dark black fruit, hints of chocolate, mint and garden herbs, we find the character of our fruit to be a consistent expression of the terroir at our estate.
