Amapola Creek Vineyards consists of 100 acres along the sun-washed western slope of the Mayacamas Mountains adjacent to the highly-acclaimed Monte Rosso Vineyard. These red, iron-oxide soils have yielded superb wines for well over a century. Founded by the renowned winemaster Richard Arrowood and now part of the B. Wise Estate, we are working with master vineyardist Phil Coturri to replant 25 acres as organically-certified estate vines.

About the Amapola Creek Grenache:
The color is an appealing bright red with a bit of purple core. The nose opens with a host of subtle aromas, graham cracker and anise, fresh rainier cherries, raspberry, and a hint of vanilla. The palate starts softly, with a hint of fresh red fruit and a wisp of spice. Wait a moment, and you will find that this wine opens grandly on the palate, a slow burn revealing gobs of bright red strawberries, supported by a subtle toast and balanced perfectly against an exquisite acidity. The finish is long and lingering, uncovering a trace of purple fruit and just the barest hint of the spice hinted at on the nose.

This wine is only available to wine club members.
