Arietta 2011 Merlot

Arietta 2011 Merlot (93 pts)

$ 78.29 $ 86.99

"From the oldest vines on Hudson ranch, dating back to the early '80s, according to winemaker Andy Erickson): Medium red-ruby. Captivating floral perfume lifts black raspberry, wild herbs and spices on the nose. Equally aromatic in the mouth, displaying juicy, intense, low-fat flavors of dark berries, wild herbs and crushed rock. By most accounts, the earlier-ripening merlot performed well in the Carneros area in 2011 and this example is a standout. The long, slowly mounting finish saturates the mouth with perfume. I'd give this very youthful wine at least a couple years in the cellar for its palate to catch up with its nose." - 93 Points, Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
