2016 Amapola Creek Cabernet Sauvignon

California | Cabernet Sauvignon
"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley is a beautiful blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot that spent two years in new and used French oak barrels. Cassis, currants, dried tobacco, and lead pencil notes all emerge from the glass and it’s layered, medium-bodied, and seamless on the palate. Possessing fine tannin and terrific overall balance, it’s going to keep for 10-15 years."

"Containing 7% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyard offers expressive crushed black currants, blackberry and cigar box notes with hints of bay leaves and chargrill. Full-bodied and concentrated in the mouth, the muscular fruit is well supported by firm, grainy tannins and ample freshness, finishing long with the oak jutting out just a tad at this very primary stage."

"Richard Arrowood, of Chateau St Jean and Arrowood Vineyards fame, rather quietly produces exceptional wines from his organic vineyard in the Mountain District of Sonoma Valley. This has bold, dark fruit flavours and good palate weight. 100% new French oak."
