Arietta Red Wine H Block Hudson Vineyards 2009 (750ML) US Flag In Stock
Arietta Red Wine H Block Hudson Vineyards 2009 (750ML)
92 WA 91+ IWC
"(a 78/22 blend of cabernet franc and merlot, co-fermented): Bright, medium red-ruby. Musky aromas of blueberry and flowers; slightly high-toned in a Right Bank way. Lively and youthfully tight, with bright peppery acidity currently dominating the wine's texture. Finishes brisk and a tad dry. In a distinctly cool style. (Incidentally, owner Fritz Hatton and winemaker Andy Erickson have decided not to bottle a 2010 version of this wine. According to Erickson, two-thirds of the cabernet franc was lost in a single day to the heat spike in late August, and the remaining fruit was harvested six weeks later.)...91+" IWC 6/11 "The 2009 H Block Hudson Vineyards is rich, deep and totally expressive. Dark red fruit, spices, mint and licorice are some of the notes that emerge from this beautifully delineated red. Sweet, silky tannins round out the elegant, supple finish. In 2009 the H Block is 78% Cabernet Franc and 22% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019...92" WA 12/11 "Andy Erickson is the winemaker at Arietta, a project owned by Fritz Hatton, whom I have known for years in his role as one of this country’s most dynamic auctioneers. This was the first time I had tasted the Arietta wines comprehensively."
