We had a fantastic tasting at Arrow & Branch, as Steve and Seanne Contursi welcomed us into their beautiful home in the Coombsville area of Napa, to try some of their excellent wines. I am not sure if they will open up their house to anyone who calls, but if they do, Arrow & Branch is definitely worth visiting. We tried the 2010 Sauvignon Blanc and the first release of their signature 2008 Red Wine (predominantly Cabernet Franc). We are also very happy to see Jennifer Williams (formerly of Spottswoode) is the new winemaker at A&B!! Definitely recommended

2008 Red Wine ($125)Rating: C-D
Jul 15th, 2011
The first release of the Arrow & Branch Red Wine; 79% Cabernet Franc, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot. Aged 20 months in 100% French Oak, a total of 63 cases were produced (80% of the crop was lost due to severe April frost). Winemaker Helen Keplinger (now of Bryant) produced a very nice wine, rich in flavor and deep garnet in color. Smooth long tannins. Excellent. I would like to revisit this wine in a few years to see how it deals with some age.

One of the better Sauvignon Blancs I have tried, I really enjoyed this wine. Crisp, fresh, clean; great flavors and finish. Excellent
