Winemaker Notes

This wine opens with mellow notes of orange peel and allspice. Swirl the glass for a moment, and you will start to uncover a hint of camphor and smoky pine resin. The palate is big and round, opening with fat dollops of juicy purple fruit. Take a moment, and you will find the palate opening up on characters of cola and black pepper, underscored by a mild savory flavor of warm confit. Pause to consider the mouthfeel, gentle, rich with supple tannins that underscore the luxurious nature of this wine. The finish is long and decadent, recalling the deep fruit flavors from the early palate, along with the barest hint of black tea and vanilla.

Blend: 69% Grenache, 22% Mourvedre, 9% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blended of 69% Grenache, 9% Syrah and 22% Mourvedre, the 2014 Cuvee Alis Estate Vineyard has a medium garnet color and a beautifully spicy nose of Chinese five spice and Sichuan pepper with a good core of cherry preserves, blueberries and dried plums, plus a waft of Provence herbs. Full-bodied, the palate is led by spice box and savory notes with velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with great persistence.

Amapola Creek Winery Image
Richard Arrowood is an iconic winemaster who has been making wine exclusively in Sonoma County for more than for 45 years. From 1974 through 1990, he created the wines for Chateau St. Jean, where he developed some of the first vineyard-designate Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon produced in Sonoma County.

He and his wife, Alis, founded Arrowood Winery with the 1985 vintage. Each year, they made extraordinary small-lot varietals and vineyard designates. Richard was the winemaster at Arrowood Winery until June 2010, when he resigned his position to devote himself full-time to making wines for his estate winery, Amapola Creek Vineyards and Winery.
