 We crafted our 2015 Réserve Spéciale from the finest vineyard sources in Sonoma County. The vintage marks the 30th Arrowood harvest, and comes in a special anniversary bottle. This wine continues the tradition of complexity and ageability in Arrowood Réserve Cabernets. It opens with aromas of lavender, black currant, anise, dark cherry, and a hint of cinnamon. It is a big wine with intense and muscular structure. Over time and as it continues aging in the bottle, the tannins will soften and reward the patient consumer.
 
 
This is a magnum bottle (1.5L).

 Opening with dark fruit aromas of blackberry, fresh fig and licorice, this wine is rich in complexities. Notes of Bing cherry and violet surface as the wine breathes. The power behind this wine ingratiates itself to the entire palate—dark chocolate and nutmeg outline baking spices and plum. The lingering finish, texture and power truly define what makes this wine the Réserve Spéciale.

Originally planted in 1880, Monte Rosso Vineyard sits at an elevation of nearly 1,000 feet on the southwest hills of the Mayacamas Mountains in Sonoma Valley. Known for its bright red, iron-rich soils, we source from two blocks within this vineyard that makes up our dark, complex and intense Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose, this wine opens with complex aromas of fruit and earth. The wine truly reflects its sense of place with notes of resin, crushed volcanic rock, leathery black fruit, tar, and cherry. This leads into an intense and expressive entry on the palate that concludes with a long and flavorful finish.

The elegant minerality on both the nose and palate reflect the rocky, red, volcanic soils of the Monte Rosso vineyard. Intense aromatics of Rainier cherry and huckleberry pour out of the glass, along with a hint of juniper and sassafras. The wine has a multi-layered structure with an opulent mid-palate and lingering, smooth finish.

The iron-like minerality on both the nose and palate is a reflection of the rocky red volcanic soils of the Monte Rosso vineyard, originally planted in 1880. Intense aromatics of cassis and dried blueberries pour out of the glass, along with a hint of juniper and cola.  The wine has a powerful structure that presents itself on the front palate, followed by an opulent mid-palate and savory sweet finish of cherry compote.
