Wine Recommendation

Arns Winery and Vineyards

2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Estate
(Napa Valley)

Sandi Belcher has put together a wine that possesses dark, deep aromas and flavors that are reminiscent of fruit compote, from her small home vineyard. It’s very young and tight now, but give it time and it’ll go on seemingly forever.

The Reviewer

Alan Goldfarb

Alan Goldfarb has been writing about and reviewing wine for 17 years. His reviews have been published in the St. Helena Star, San Jose Mercury, San Francisco Examiner, Decanter, and Wine Enthusiast, among others. Not once has he used a point system, star system, or an iconic symbol to quantify a wine. What counts in Mr. Goldfarb’s criteria when judging a wine is: how it tastes in the glass; is it well-constructed; its food compatibility; and presence of redeeming regional attributes.
