The 2009 Arise reveals beautiful aromas of cherry, blackberry, fig and cedar with a chewy mid-palate of enticing plum, red fruit, and spice flavors. Wine Enthusiast calls it a glorious wine. Based on Merlot, with nearly equal parts of the two Cabernets, it is softly smooth and delicious right now. Totally bone dry, yet rich and sweet in cherries, berries, chocolate and cedar, it satisfies on every level.
