Amapola Creek 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyard
Wine Advocate 90-92 Rating
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 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has the identical blend of the 2013, slightly less alcohol (15%) and displays deep blueberry and blackberry fruit, an opaque ruby/purple color and a full-bodied mouthfeel with notes of subtle barrique intermixed with licorice, earth and spice. It should drink well for at least 20 years, as it is slightly more fruit-forward than the 2013.
