Description

Details

WA 94 Pts - According to Robert Parker - Arrowood has a long history of making Syrah, and his 2007 Syrah from a mountainside estate vineyard organically farmed has a dense purple color and a big sweet kiss of exotic flowers, blue and black fruits, graphite, and subtle smoke. Full-bodied, opulent, fleshy, intense and layered, this is a brilliant Syrah, still very youthful, and best drunk over the next decade or more.

 

Winemakers Notes - Painstaking organic farming and finely-tuned crop levels on our estate vines gave us a phenomenal Syrah, one we would be very pleased to make every year. It happens that 2007 was the first crush at our new Amapola Creek facility, and what a spectacular way to start. This wine was punched down entirely by hand and put into 40% new Ermitage barrels with the balance in seasoned French oak.

 

Ink black with a dark purple edge, this intense Syrah offers effusive aromas of wonderfully ripe plums, smoked meats and deli spices with hints of anisette. On the mouth, it is succulent and seamless, with complex layers of black plum, boysenberry and meaty flavors, smooth tannins and a trace of cloves on the impeccably balanced, enduring finish. Rated 90+

Purple Teeth Alert
I jest... this is a proper and well made Syrah. The wine is layared, with cherry, plum, and vanilla in the forefront. There is impressive depth here, with a rich round mouth-feel, really nice (and unexpected) minerality, and a evocative finish. A bit heavy on the alcohol, but enjoyable never-the-less.

Amapola Creek 2007 Syrah Sonoma Valley
This is a rich, dark and full bodied Syrah worthy of it's 94 point score from Wine Advocate. There is a lot of black fruit upfront followed by spice and smoke. I enjoyed this wine and would recommend it to any Syrah drinker.
