2007 Arietta Variation One 150CL
A blend of 55% Syrah and 45% Merlot, the 2007 Variation One reveals smoky bacon notes intermixed with notions of boysenberries, wild flowers, forest floor, pepper, and wood spice. Drink this medium to full-bodied, supple red over the next 6-7 years.
Arietta, an ultra-premium Napa winery specializing in limited production Bordeaux-style blends, is owned by wine specialist and auctioneer Fritz Hatton and his wife Caren. One of America’s most celebrated winemakers, Andy Erickson, crafts the Arietta wines from carefully chosen blocks in the cooler climates of Napa Valley.
The Hattons founded Arietta in 1996 in partnership with winemaker John Kongsgaard and his wife Maggy. The partnership was born of a shared passion for fine wine and classical music. The Arietta wine portfolio currently consists of five red wines — H Block Hudson Vineyards, Merlot Hudson Vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Quartet, and Variation One — and one White Wine, On The White Keys.
