2019 Red Wine – Napa Valley
The second of the Founders’ Series wines is named for “The Little Spaniard”, Brother George Miles Arnold. He, along with his lifelong friend and Brother George Wyatt Hollingsworth, are credited by Brother Stephen Alonzo Jackson with discovering and conveying the Bologna Tradition from Europe. Dr. Arnold, as he was later known, married after his graduation and practiced medicine in New York City for many years. His home continued to be a meeting place of Kappa Sigmas in the early days of the Fraternity. His son, Robert Miles Arnold, cemented his legacy and was an initiate of the Gamma-Zeta Chapter at New York University in 1908.
The 2019 Founders Red Wine is an artful red blend created by winemaker Todd Heth. This wine exhibits dark blackberry, bing cherry and plum notes perfectly into layers of coffee and tobacco. The finish is dry with long lasting berry fruit. Silky but firm tannins, this wine is enjoyable now but has the ability to age well in the cellar. The second bottling honors George Miles Arnold.
