Bill Arbios began winemaking over 40 years ago! He has achieved a level of expertise in his field that few ever have the opportunity to reach. After working for several influential wineries, Bill was able to fulfill his dream of making wine from his own vineyard. Bill planted a 21-acre hilltop vineyard in Alexander Valley to his specifications using 6 different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon on soil that is essentially rock. The vineyard struggles each year to produce. The stress of the vines limits yields and concentrates flavors.

We’ve carried this outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon for over ten vintages. It is pretty much a staple here at TWH for several reasons, not the least of which is that in an era of super-pricey Cabernets (think $100 plus a bottle), this estate-grown, balanced red is a steal at $30. It really is almost unheard of to have this level of quality (small production; sustainably-grown fruit; family-run winery; prime growing region) so fairly priced.

The 2013 Arbios Cabernet Sauvignon spent almost three years in French oak barrel, only a third of it new. It has rich black fruit flavors with warm spice notes. The oak stands in the background, giving texture to the tannins, but overall this is a very elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Truly yummy!
