Arietta Quartet 2014
Wine AdvocateThe least expensive wine, the 2014 Proprietary Red Quartet, a blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, is a wonderfully juicy wine showing plenty of cherries, blackcurrants, spice, supple tannins and a whiff of oak in the background. The wine is round and borderline opulent, but elegant, complex and already offering charming and seductive drinking. The color is deep ruby, plum/purple. This is a quintessentially elegant wine that can be found in Northern California and certainly Fritz Hatton has done it. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.
