2014 Davies Napa Valley Cabernet Sauv. - Library (1 x 750 ml)

The Davies family, proprietors of Schramsberg Vineyards and the J. Davies Estate Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley, presents its third vintage of Davies Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Expanding from the knowledge gained through the production of the J. Davies Estate wines on Diamond Mountain, this bottling offers a broader exploration of the Napa Valley. A diverse blend of vineyards, ranging from valley floor to both the Mayacamas and Vaca mountain ranges, provided the winemaking team a great range of delicious fruit with which to craft this 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Five vineyards sites from across Napa Valley have been artfully blended to construct an assembly of layered qualities in this wine. Two vineyards from the lush, alluvial soils on the valley floor in Yountville and Rutherford, contribute a core of deep flavors and firm tannins. Next, moving just off the valley floor, at the foot of Mount St. Helena in Calistoga, is a site with delicious fruit that springs from white soils, yielding softer and brighter fruitful nuances. Finally, two rugged mountain hillside sites, where the soils are volcanic and sedimentary, are brought in. These sites, from Diamond Mountain and Howell Mountain, cultivate low-yielding vines that produce ripe red fruit for balance and structure.

This blends vineyards from across the valley, successfully capturing a compact and full-bodied explosion of black cherry and chocolate that benefits from bright, balanced acidity. Though offering depth and concentration, it finds a focused freshness that adds length and breadth.- Wine Enthusiast (September 2017)
