An absolute gem from our Estate, the 2019 Red is maybe our best vintage yet.  As Jeb Dunnuck put it “The 2019 Estate Red is another magical wine from winemaker Sam Kaplan”.  We happen to agree.  With each new vintage brings opportunity to continue to improve the way the wines are shaped in the vineyard and in the cellar.  This one is really an incredible stunner.  82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, and the rest Merlot and Malbec all from our Howell Mountain Estate. 600 cases produced

Vineyard Notes
Our 2019 wines are dense with dark fruit and elevated structure, the result of late spring rains followed by a hot, dry summer. Our seasoned farming team was busier than ever managing the enthusiastic growth of the vines in our organic vineyards, and you can taste the results of their labor. As with all Arkenstone wines, they are very approachable now and can also age 30+ years and still maintain the classic mark of our Howell Mountain Estate.
