Nothing in particular stands out in the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Arsenal. Instead, it is the wine's overall balance that truly impresses. Lavender, mint, sweet spices and red stone fruit are all finely spun into the racy finish. Sadly, this is Pott's last vintage of The Arsenal, as proprietor Rob Greer has opted to keep all of the fruit for his own project. (AG)
A big-time wine is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Arsenal from the Greer Vineyard in Rutherford. I believe this is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is dense purple, with loamy soil undertones interwoven with créme de cassis, blackberry, spice box and cedar wood. The wine is deep, rich opulent and a big-time winner with sweet tannins. This wine should drink well for two decades as well. Aaron Pott is obviously a super-talented winemaker who seems to have a bright future ahead of him. He is buying fruit from interesting sources and turning them into exciting wines. There are not large quantities of any of these wines, but readers would be best served to get on the mailing list and try some of the ones that sound most interesting to them. Drink through 2035.

Combines richness with depth and harmony, presenting a smooth, caressing texture to the core of earthy currant, anise, cedar and black licorice flavors, gliding along on the finish. (JL)
