Marietta’s husband, Armé, nurtured my father’s love for this majestic landscape we call home. This is an exemplary California Cabernet aromatic experience filled with dried minty herbs and lavender. Blackberries, bright cherries, and plums, with hints of leather and tobacco, all intertwine for a wonderfully balanced mouthfeel. Sumptuous yet racy, polished yet spirited, delicious and gratifying—it is an iconic culmination in the glass.
94 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “The 2018 Armé Cabernet Sauvignon is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 7% Merlot, 4% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot. Medium ruby-purple, it has pure, classic aromas of cassis, graphite, violets, loamy earth and tobacco. The intensely flavored palate is light on its feet with loads of juicy lift and a soft tannic frame, and it finishes long and floral. It’s an incredibly elegant style, particularly at this price point!”
93 Points James Suckling – “Round-textured and fruity with balance and softness, yet freshness at the same time. Medium-bodied. Attractive berry, currant and sweet green-tobacco undertones.”
93 Points Wine Enthusiast & Editors Choice – “This full-flavored, full-bodied and moderately tannic wine tastes bold but polished, showcasing luscious, ripe blackberries, blueberries and dark chocolate laced with fine-grained tannins. Layering and depth in the fruit flavors is nicely complemented by subtle accents of vanilla and new leather. Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot make up 15% of the blend. *Editors’ Choice*”
