Winemaker Notes: Arkenstone, on Howell Mountain, was named after Tokien’s ‘diamond at the heart of the mountain’. Ron and Susan Krausz discovered the property in 1984. They chose to become a true estate, planting their vineyards in 1988 and completing the winery in 2008.

Ruby red with deep black undertones, this dense yet elegantly focused beauty is a very special expression of the Howell Mountain terroir, and the beautiful 2015 vintage. Cassis, violet, mocha, graphite, and dried tea leaves greet the nose, along with our signature earth, sweet tobacco, and leather. A clean minerality and bright acidity are complemented by dark black cherry, star anise and mocha on the front palate while deep espresso, blackberry cobbler, blueberries, lavender and baking spices roundly fill the mid-palate. Very fine, lush tannins hold the richly dark chocolate, cassis-laden, long velvety finish. This wine is drinking beautifully balanced and youthfully vibrant right now, but will easily lie down for 30+ years.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "This estate blend from Howell Mountain was formerly known as “Obsidian.” Composed of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 4% Malbec, the 2015 Proprietary Red Estate gives a deep garnet-purple color and aromas of spiced blackberries, fruitcake and plum pudding with suggestions of Indian spices, earth and underbrush, plus a touch of violets. Packed with rich, opulent fruit in the full-bodied mouth, it has a solid, fine-grained backbone and plenty of freshness, finishing long and multilayered. 500 cases were made."
