2018 Amoenus Vineyard 1.5L
We are thrilled to introduce the latest member of the Arkenstone family and new single-vineyard wine: the 2018 Amoenus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.
When the opportunity to work with this very special vineyard presented itself in 2018, we couldn't pass it up. And when we began tasting through the barrels last year, it became clear that it deserved its own special bottling.
Perched in the western hillsides above Calistoga, the Amoenus Vineyard offers a unique counterpoint to our traditional eastern mountain wines. Slightly higher tone fruit with hints of dry cherry and raspberry balance beautifully with the depth of dark fruit and earth that result from cool evenings and warm days in this part of the Valley.
This young wine will be the star of your holiday table - or a spectacular gift. We recommend giving it some time in a decanter to bring out its full personality.
With fewer than 300 cases produced, we don't anticipate this wine will last long.
