2013 Arrowood Proprietary Red Blend  (Sonoma Valley) 89

Medium bodied, earthy and fresh, with more red than black fruit. There is a lot of vibrancy to the red berry notes in the finish here. This is ready to drink on release. 89 Points

Filled with dark, sweet, ripe fruit with, licorice, floral, boysenberry, orange peel, coffee and blueberry aromas. Still young, this wine competes with Sine Qua Non in the same vintage and it is probably a better wine. 95 Points

Perfectly balanced with layers of black fruit, spice and floral aromas. Full bodied, concentrated, multilayered, plush, rich, complex juice with an elegant finish. It’s a shame Arrowood sold the winery because it slid rapidly downhill after the 97 vintage. 95 Points

1996 Arrowood Syrah Saralee's Vineyard  (Russian River Valley) 94

At 20 years of age, this is still a beauty. Fresh, vibrant, complex, soft and filled with ripe, sweet, spicy fruits, this is a perfect wine to serve blind to your friends. And if you're able to find a bottle with good provenance, it sells for a song! 94 Points

1994 Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Réserve Spéciale  (Sonoma County) 90

Smoke, incense, caramel, earth and spicy, dark berry aromas lead to medium bodied, finesse styled wine that ends with a light cherry note with a touch of olive and herbs in the finish. This is fully mature and requires drinking. 90 Points
