About Our Ratings

Amapola Creek 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley
Award winning Winemaker Dick Arrowood has been celebrated for the amazing wines he produced at Chateau St. Jean and then at his own Arrowood winery for decades now. This is his latest project, a single vineyard spread along 600 vertical feet of a sun-washed western slope of the Mayacamas range bordering the highly acclaimed Monte Rosso Vineyards and all 20 acres of this mountain estate vineyards are CCOF certified organic. The red, basaltic volcanic soils they share with their esteemed next-door neighbor have yielded superb wine for well over the last century and the 2013 vintage proved nearly perfect, yielding complex, balanced, and ripe fruit that resulted in lush, full-bodied wine. 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, the wine was aged 24 months in 80% French and 20% American oak barrels. Robert Parker scored this 96 points saying "Arrowood deserves a lot more credit than he often gets for his Cabernet Sauvignons, which are long-lived. Some of the early Château St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignons have stood the test of time, and those made under the Arrowood label, especially his Reserves, are 30+ year wines at the minimum. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, is brilliant. Notes of graphite, crème de cassis, blueberry and blackberry along with some espresso are all present in this dense, full-bodied wine with great fruit, beautiful purity and moderately high tannins. There are just under 1,600 cases. This wine ideally needs another 2-3 years of bottle age and should drink well for 25-30 years." Limited!!

I drank the 2012 and it was fabulous. Tried to get more but couldn't. So I bought the 2013. It is great but young. Robert Parker gave it a 96. I gave it a rating of 4/5 but as it matures I think it will improve and my rating would probably increase. Great value!!
