2004 Arietta "H Block Hudson" Napa Valley Cabernet Franc-Merlot

SKU #1031355 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This 70% Cabernet Franc/30% Merlot blend offers spice box, cedar, clove and baking spices along with red and black currants that emerge from this medium-bodied, pleasant, seemingly mature 2004. The wine is somewhat compact and narrowly constructed, but well made. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

K&L Notes

This is the second to last vintage of Arietta's signature wine made by John Kongsgaard, who sold his interest in the winery to co-owner Fritz Hatton in 2005. New winemaker Andy Erickson worked with Kongsgaard on the 2005 vintage before taking the reins entirely in 2006. According to the winery: "In barrel and at bottling the Arietta H Block 2004 was beautifully perfumed and forward, with flavors of medium density and great persistence." Like many Ariettas, this wine needed time to rest, but this should be drinking at its peak now.
