Notes from the Winemaker:
Marietta’s Husband, Armé, lived, worked and fished throughout Alexander Valley, the Yorkville Highlands, Hopland and McDowell Valleys. From our vineyards in those same areas, we bring the best of what these sites offer to create a unique Cabernet-based blend. With Malbec and Petit Verdot providing a structured, full, rich platform, Armé is a tribute not only to our Great Uncle, but also to the wide range of flavors that we now grow in the places he loved so much.

Tasting notes:
Armé has chewy, rich, concentrated flavors of classic black currant, cherries, smoke and earth, with fine tannins and a long structured finish. The nose elegantly combines aromas of spice-box, green olive and black licorice.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Another non-vintage cuvée introduced by the sons is the non-vintage Arme Lot #1. A Bordeaux blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 4% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, it is a deep, delicious, full-bodied, 5,000-case cuvée boasting a dark ruby/purple color as well as attractive notes of cassis, dusty, loamy soil and foresty undertones. Lush and heady, it is ideal for drinking over the next decade or more. (Dec 31, 2014)
