The dark plum/purple-tinged 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Amapola Estate Vineyard offers a big, sweet nose of cassis, black cherry jam, forest floor and smoke. An elegant Cabernet with serious intensity, good purity and medium weight, it reminds me of a stylish California version of a Bordeaux St.-Julien. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, it should provide plenty of pleasure over the next decade or more.

Wine maker notes
Spread along 600 vertical feet of a sun-washed western slope of the Mayacamas Range, our 100-plus-acre Amapola Creek ranch borders the highly acclaimed Monte Rosso Vineyards. The red, basaltic volcanic soils we share with our esteemed next-door neighbor have yielded superb wine for well over a century when Monte Rosso was originally planted to vines. The rhyolitic soils from our China Wall Vineyard add a firm tannin structure to the French clone Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted there in 2000. All 20 acres of our mountain estate vineyards are CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) certified organic. Our four estate vineyard blocks are a delicate mosaic of soil types and microclimates, overlaid with a careful mixture of clonal selections that maximize the unique qualities of each site, allowing Richard Arrowood to apply his masterful blending skills to produce a wine of exceptional balance, depth, and complexity
