Product Description

Good full ruby-red. Deep, highly complex nose combines blackberry, black cherry, violet, minerals, nuts and smoky oak. A wonderfully rich wine that offers great mouth coverage but maintains real zing, thanks to its mineral freshness and firm tannic spine. The pHs for this cuvee are routinely in the 3.8 to 3.9 range, notes Kongsgaard, but the wine always tastes fresher. Finishes very long and lively, with big, chewy tannins.

Wine Maker's Notes: "The combination of a splendid vintage and slightly above average yields from the Hudson N Block allowed us to produce the first Arietta Merlot since 1999. This wine may turn out to be the biggest of the three Arietta 2002s. Unbelievably deep, creamy, and rich, with liqueur-like fruit and aromas of herbs, the Arietta Merlot Hudson Vineyards 2002 proves how classy and complex Merlot can be when this finicky varietal is planted in a suitable microclimate (which is rare). Given the tannins and massive size of the wine, you should hold the wine for at least two years, and enjoy over the next ten. (600 cases)"
