“A classic iteration of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon…
absolutely spectacular wine…a great expression of the grape…
a Cabernet with great elegance”

“Dense and chewy, yet very soft on delivery…with a nice finish. 
An exotic, sexy wine.” “A very impressive Cab…could easily
demand more princely sums.”

“Arbios is virtually a one-man show starting with 125 cases in 1993 and
settling in at about 3,000 now” making “excellent wine at a fair price.”

expressing his own artistry with his own wine.”

Bill Arbios “was one of the pioneers in setting the standards for meritage
wines while at Lyeth in 1981.  He started Arbios Cellars in 1993, and since then
has been producing high quality, reasonably priced Cabernet.”
