This was the best I could find. https://wine.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=7157257&pageindex=1#post7157438

Edit: never mind; that was the 2012. Here it is: https://wine.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=7228231&pageindex=1#post7228339

I'm conflicted; I *love* Vincent Arroyo wines, but I'm not seeing much in the way of reviews, and I recently went on a wine buying spree (for me) so the timing isn't great. Reading the (correct) review, even though it's only one, has me leaning towards buy.

Here was my review from August 31 of the 2014, at the same price point:

I have the distinct honor to celebrate International Cabernet Day by sampling a 2014 Bridge 1904 Cabernet Sauvignon, a side-label produced by Vincent Arroyo Winery in Calistoga, Napa Valley.

I sampled this wine over two successive nights after letting the wine rest a couple days after shipment. The bottle was a heavy one and slightly tapered. When poured, the wine was a dark-ruby shade, and swirling produced even ridges and legs on the glass. On the nose, the early aromas were tainted by the oxygen exchange, but after about 30 to 45 minutes, there was a more pronounced cherry smell. Since I didn’t decant the bottle, the same process happened the next night.

I enjoyed sipping this wine immensely. It was a medium-bodied and bold wine, like one would expect in a good Cabernet, but it was also very soft and silky. What a nice thing to find such a strong but elegant wine. Although it was jammy and plummy, it was enhanced by very fine tannins, and it left a slightly dry feeling on the palate. This wasn’t a fruit bomb, and I had the impression that, given a couple of years in the cellar and some good decanting, its complexity would increase further, deepening in richness.

With a Chardonnay companion, this wine was designed for nice restaurants. This wine stands well on its own without food pairing, although a little mild cheese was nice.

All I can find is a mention in this repost of a WSJ article from yesterday. Sounds like it is pretty closely surrounded as of yesterday.

I ended up buying this after I posted, but given these fires, I don't know when/if it'll be shipped.

There's mandatory evacuation in Calistoga, but earlier today, the Vincent Arroyo winery page posted that they were safe and sound. I'm in the Bay Area and it's a mess. The air quality is so bad that my son's school was closed today and will be tomorrow (after having "indoor days" the first couple days this week). Based upon what I'm reading and the wineries I visited last weekend, the majority of the harvests are in..but this has got to be a blow to wine country for years to come.

Of course. Sorry if I sounded otherwise. A wine order is infinitesimal compared to everyone's lives and livelihoods! I just hope the fires are fully contained soon.

The mandatory evacuation in Calistoga has been lifted.
