Vinous / Antonio Galloni
A bold, pungent wine, the 2014 Armé offers a decidedly old school-influenced profile of dark stone fruit, black olive, herb, tobacco and licorice. Cool and savory, but with considerable depth, the 2014 Armé is another knock-out wine from Scot Bilbro. Readers looking for a value-priced California Cabernet will flip out over this wine. This is a very serious wine for the money.
Marietta's husband, Arme, lived, worked and fished throughout Alexander Valley, the Yorkville Highlands and the McDowell Valley. From Marietta's vineyards in those same valleys, the winemakers combine the best of what these sites offer to create a unique Cabernet Sauvignon. This approachable but incredibly serious wine is representative of excellent site selection and innovative winemaking.
