HISTORY
TWO ARROWHEADS takes us back to the forest and the hunt for the mythical White Doe. Many believe the survivors of the mysterious Lost Colony of Roanoke found shelter with the nearby Croatoan tribe, led by Manteo. Among them may have been Virginia Dare, the first child of English descent born in the new world. According to legend, as the girl grew into a beautiful woman, she fell in love with a young warrior named Okisko. But a jealous suitor put a spell on her and the fair maiden was transformed into a snow-white deer. Many men chased the white doe, seeking to capture her elusive spirit and prove their worth as warriors.


Okisko, her true love, carried an enchanted arrow that would restore the doe to human form. Another hunter, Wanchese, shot to kill. As fate would have it, both men shot true and the two arrowheads found their target at the exact same time. The white doe turned back into a beautiful woman, but it was too late; the warrior’s arrow had pierced her heart. In the spot where the doe fell, a scuppernong grapevine grew—the first wine grapes cultivated in North America, now known as the Mother Vine. As the doe’s blood soaked the soil, the white grapes on the vine turned red. With her last breath, the maiden revealed her true name, the name she had been born with: Virginia Dare.

VINTAGE
2013 was one of the driest growing seasons on record. There was very little rain that year and temperatures never got excessively warm for any period of time. Because of slow, steady ripening, the crop achieved optimal development and was very high quality. The Viognier and Roussanne we harvested showed purity and rich, concentrated fruit that retained an excellent balance of natural acidity to give the wine body and dimension.

WINEMAKER NOTES
Over the last 25 years, Paso Robles has proven to be an ideal setting for Rhône varietals. This appellation experiences a contrast of warm days and cool evenings and has calcareous limestone soils like those found in France’s Côtes du Rhône region. Two Arrowheads is an expressive wine and highly aromatic due to the Viognier in the blend. It’s a perfect partner to Roussanne, which adds flavor complexity, textural dimension and sweet baking spice notes. Partially barrel fermented, the majority of the lots were finished in stainless steel to help preserve the wine’s alluring fragrance. 

TASTING NOTES
A beautiful perfume of white peaches, guava, orange blossom and nutmeg emerges from the glass followed by bright, juicy flavors of tropical fruit, melon, and notes of honey and vanilla. Round in texture, the palate has lushness and weight that is balanced by a refreshing vibrancy.
