Amapola Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

External Review by eVintner Wines and Spirits:

Beautiful aromas of black cherries, cassis, and blackberries. Toasty oak and vanilla notes complement the rich fruit for a well-integrated Cabernet. Finishes with fine tannins, black fruit notes, and a hint of dark chocolate.

After a lifetime spent making wine in Sonoma County, in 2001 we were fortunate to find Amapola Creek, an ideal location to produce small quantities of outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon. Our ranch consists of 120 acres along the sun-washed western slope of the Mayacamas Mountains adjacent to the highly-acclaimed Monte Rosso Vineyard. These red, iron-oxide soils have yielded superb wines for well over a century. We have planted approximately 20 acres of organically and sustainably farmed estate vines to continue in that tradition. Each vine is literally hand-tended by Sonoma Valley’s leading organic viticulturist, Phil Coturri. We care about quality, our reputation, our environment and our consumer. As responsible stewards of this land, we have built erosion prevention, wildlife corridors, power and water conservation, recycling and the use of bio-diesel fuel into our small farming operation.

Amapola Creek Cabernet Sauvignon from the western slopes of the gorgeous Mayacamas mountains displays beautiful aromas of black cherries, cassis, and blackberries. Amapola Creek Cabernet Sauvignon shows toasty oak and vanilla notes which complement the rich fruit for this well-integrated Cabernet. Amapola Creek Cabernet Sauvignon finishes with fine tannins, black fruit notes, and a hint of dark chocolate. Unfined and unfiltered allows this big league Cab. to strut it's stuff, while maintaining the purity and dignity of great Cali. Cab.
