Winemaker's Notes: "After denying us in 2011, Mother Nature made things right in 2012 by delivering one of the most intense, aromatic, and flavorful Syrah harvests in years from Hudson Vineyards. The 2012 Arietta Variation One is a powerhouse of a wine. Its mouthwatering, explosive entry boasts aromas of fresh-dug earth, smoke, diesel, and ripe black fruits. It exhibits all that is great about both of these varieties, especially when grown in their favorite conditions. The dark, brooding character of the Syrah is tempered by the juicy, vibrant acidity and fresh berry notes of the Merlot. The wine is aged in 50% new French oak for 20 months, rounding the tannins and providing a soft, plush texture, even for such a powerful wine. With such impressive density, this wine will age for decades, but for the brave of heart it will impress immediately."
