K&L Notes

Amapola Creek winery is the latest project from legendary winemaker Richard Arrowood. Richard is one of the early greats in Sonoma, and has made wine in the area since 1974. Working as winemaker for Chateau St. Jean for many years and eventually founding Arrowood winery, Richard has finally “retired” to focus on his estate vineyard and winery, Amapola Creek. Few know the climate and terroir of Sonoma Valley better than Richard. While Sonoma Valley is mostly known for Cabernet, Richard feels that a Rhône blend has a calling here too, and he makes a masterful one, named after his wife Alis. The 2013 Amapola Creek “Cuvée Alis” Sonoma Valley Red Blend brings out a different side of the classic Rhône blend. This wine is also Grenache dominated, but includes a good proportion of Mourvèdre in the blend, lending the wine weight and deep black fruit. With bottle aging, this wine has also developed a beautiful savory olive and cured-meat element, which adds further complexity. A great example of the more savory and full bodied Rhône style, Cuvée Alis would work perfectly with grilled meats, and even steak.
