To say this wine is a darling of Robert Parker and the Wine Advocate would be an understatement. Every vintage since 2005, with the exception of 2011, of this wine is rated 90+ and most years the rating is in the 94-96pt range.
This deal price is extremely limited. For the true Sonoma Cab enthusiast, this is a special wine to drink now and to enjoy over a brilliant, age-worthy future.
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (1,568 cases) comes from the new AVA called Moon Mountain. A beauty, it offers up aromas of forest floor, black cherries, earth and spice with the oak pushed to the background. Full-bodied with good depth, richness and density, the tannin is velvety textured and beautifully integrated into this full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.
Amapola Creek is the relatively recent project of Richard Arrowood and his wife, Alis. There are only a handful of wine producers in northern California that have the breadth of experience and impressive résumé of Richard Arrowood. ~ 94 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
