Making up for missing pick- up day with this lovely thing. Definitely large scale by a-r standards but very nicely defined and beautiful perfume.

Beautiful high-toned nose. Ultra-silky texture.

This has a fluffy nose that is red fruit dominated along with strong butter and green bell pepper notes. Medium intensity and medium complexity. The tannins are a little gritty on the palate and the fruit is not quite coming through. Medium length #arnotroberts #cabernetsauvignon #chalkhill #sonoma #ctbucklinwine

Very nice. Acid is there to battle all that stuffing. Tannin is soft, but abundant.

Gorgeous blue fruits (notably boysenberry), black fruits and tobacco leaf.
