Integrated and Lusciously Rich!

The Davies family, proprietors of Schramsberg Vineyards and the J. Davies Estate in Napa Valley, 
presents its eighth vintage of Davies Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. 
Expanding on knowledge gained through the production of wines from the Diamond Mountain estate, 
this bottling offers a broader exploration of the Napa Valley. 
A diverse blend of vineyards from the valley floor to both the Mayacamas and Vaca mountain ranges 
?crafting a deliciously layered and balanced cult Cabernet Sauvignon.

94 Points Wine Enthusiast
“This is made from a blend of vineyards, and includes 16% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. 
Savory earth, cedar and pencil shavings accent a juicy midpalate of black cherry, mocha and black currant, 
with supple, silky tannins wrapping around the palate and adding structure.”

94 Points Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is charming, 
with plenty of cassis and spice notes, intermixed with classic fruit and dried herb-like aromas and flavors. 
It's easygoing and medium-bodied, with sweet fruit and loads of character. 
I'd happily drink bottles over the coming decade or so.”

Our Thoughts on this wine.....

This Cabernet opens with rich aromas of black plum, red cherry and marionberry, 
accentuated by undertones of vanilla, spice, cocoa and a spike of herbs. 
Firm, but integrated, tannins anchor the wines presence on the palate, where a broad array of blueberry and chocolate flavors are followed by hints of freshly roasted coffee and blackberry.

A bit about the Davies in their own words…..

Ten Years of Research and Experimentation

Hugh Davies has crafted a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the historicDiamond Mountain vineyards he explored from early childhood. Named in honor of his father Jack L. Davies, this wine is a culmination of 45 years of intimate knowledge of a place and a passion to create a delicious red wine after more than three decades of creating world-renowned sparkling wines.

The first Bordeaux varietals were planted on the Davies family estate in 1994. Vineyard layout, rootstock, clonal and grape variety selections were revised over time, with a particular emphasis on refining the tight structure and tannic nature characteristic of Diamond Mountain fruit. The continuing success of J. Davies’ sister winery Schramsberg afforded the winery 10 years time to perfect its first wine from Bordeaux varietals: The first J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon (2001) was released in 2004. Hugh and his viticultural and winemaking team have combined experience with this land that totals six decades.

A Place Like No Other: The Vineyards

Initially, the Davies planted their estate vineyards to the traditional, méthode champenoise grape varieties. Over time, it became apparent that this land was better suited to the cultivation of red Bordeaux varietals, while the depth and character the Davies sought in sparkling wines called for sourcing from a palette of cool-climate vineyards in Carneros, Anderson Valley and the Sonoma and Marin coastal areas.

The first vines on what is now the J. Davies Schram Vineyard were planted in 1862 by Jacob Schram and, at the time, comprised Napa Valley’s first hillside vineyard. This, and the J. Davies’ McEachran Vineyard (first planted in 1878), total 43 acres and are now the southernmost vineyards in the Diamond Mountain District AVA. Flanked by two cool creek canyons — Nash Creek to the north and Ritchie Creek to the south — and surrounded by dense coniferous and deciduous forests, the vines here produce late-ripening, richly concentrated fruit with average yields of just two tons per acre.
