Made from selections across clones and vintages 2005 - 2009 that were not blended with the Arns Estate Cabernet. These small lots were intentionally set aside for this special blend because of their unique character and flavors. The rich older vintages along with the vibrant new vintages offer a great experience for the palate. Chocolate, cherries, anise, mulberry and black raspberries add complexity and charm to this blend you can experience now or cellar for a later enjoyment. 100 cases produced.
92 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with an exciting array of super-black fruit, smoke, incense and tobacco.

Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (Dec 2012)
