After over 30 years of crafting Sonoma County’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s safe to say that we at Arrowood Winery have amassed a small wine collection over the years. Okay, small might not be the best word considering that the shelves of our cellar are lined with vintages spanning the last three decades.
The question of how to taste wine is often asked by those who are new to wine tasting. This is a great question and the formula for evaluating wine is essential to what we do here at the winery. With the upcoming Fall release, we have six great new vintages to explore, but have decided to take a more in-depth look at the process with one of our favorites - an extremely limited, Tasting Room-exclusive: the 2015 Knights Valley Malbec.
If your friends and family know that you love wine, odds are good that you have been the recipient of several (if not more) wine aerators over the years. And if you’re like us here at Arrowood, most of those gadgets are unused and sitting in a box somewhere near your wine collection.
