Are you still in search of the most prized vintage of the decade, 2007?  If so, then Amapola Creek is the wine for you.  If you are a Cabernet lover, then I presume you love wines with lush fruits, a generous mouth-feel and a full body. It would also be safe to say that you are still in search of the most prized vintage of the decade, 2007.  If all of this is true, then Amapola Creek is the wine for you.

This luscious Cabernet is a product of one of California’s greatest wine makers, Richard Arrowood.  The vineyard sits on the border of the famous Monte Rosso vineyard, along the steep slopes of the Macayamus range reaching a 600 ft elevation.

Amapola Creek Cabernet is a dark ruby color, with magenta highlights and intense aromas of cassis, ripe plum and blackberries.  On the palate the wine is full and elegant and the alcohol is well-integrated, finishing with a sweet coconut taste.  You might not be familiar with the name, but all the pieces come together to make this Cabernet the best kept secret in California.
