Arietta 2019 Quartet Red Wine Napa Valley

Arietta 2019 Quartet Red Wine Napa Valley

Following on the heels of the much-heralded 2018 vintage, the wines from 2019—another nearly flawless growing season—have surprised and delighted us from the very beginning. In contrast to the 2018 wines, which are characterized by their breadth, richness, and generosity, the 2019 vintage wines are defined by a high level of energy, intensity, and precision. There is a similarly impressive weight to the wines, and the hedonistic appeal is there in spades. However, along with the dark hues, depth, and opacity of the wines comes an aromatic brightness and a remarkable level of detail and finesse. The slightly lower yields in the vineyard in 2019 also added to the concentration and structure, elements that will certainly help the wines to age for many years to come. Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot


James Suckling - 92 Points

"Aromas of blackcurrants, sour cherries, blackberry leaves, dried thyme and spice box. Some earthy undertones. Full body with firm, supple tannins. Creamy finish. 55% cabernet sauvignon, 39% merlot, 4% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Drink or hold."


Jeb Dunnuck - 92 Points

"Checking in as 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2019 Red Blend Quartet offers up a ripe, yet pure bouquet of blue fruits (blueberries, cassis), lots of spring flowers and tobacco, medium to full body, a pure, sumptuous mouthfeel, silky tannins, and a great finish. It's a great value."


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 91 Points

"Composed of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2019 Quartet sings of black cherries, plum preserves and black raspberries, plus hints of dried Provence herbs and mossy tree bark. Full-bodied, soft and juicy in the mouth, it has loads of bright red fruit and herbal sparks lifting the decadent ripe black fruit preserves flavors, finishing long and mineral laced."


Vinous - 91 Points

"The 2019 Red Blend Quartet is a tasty, entry-level wine from Arietta. Red flowers, spice, mocha and dark cherry fruit are nicely lifted in this attractive mid-weight offering. This deceptively soft, entry-level offering has tons of pedigree and plenty of mid-term cellaring potential. Best after 2024."
