Arietta is the name for wines born of a passion for music. The name Arietta, meaning short aria or art song, expresses our belief that all great wines must sing. Both wine & song should “take flight,” in the course of which the qualities of balance, vibrancy, depth, overtones, and complexity resonate and give us a sense of exaltation. Add ANDY ERICKSON, the longtime Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, et al winemaker and you have the keys to success!

Wine Enthusiast 97 Points: “Always a standout from this winning combination of site and producer, this is a 100% varietal vineyard-designate, from the cool landscape of Carneros. Rainier cherry, cassis and a dusting of baking spice highlight a seamless body of integrated tannin and oak, the wine offering power but also enduring elegance. While enjoyable now, it will benefit from further aging; enjoy best 2029–2039.”
Vinous 94 Points: “The 2019 Merlot Hudson Vineyard is packed with dark plum fruit, chocolate and a whole range of cool-climate savory notes that add complexity as well as nuance. The Hudson Merlot is one the most distinctive wines in Napa Valley but it needs cellaring to be at its best. These are the oldest vines on Lee Hudson’s property.”
Andy Erickson, Winemaker: “The wine seems supercharged, with a pointedly robust midpalate, intense black fruit aromas, and strength and length that is downright exciting. This eminently enjoyable wine is deep and layered, but also buoyant and uplifting.”
