2021 Davies "Napa Valley" Cabernet (1 X 750ML)

The Davies family, proprietors of Schramsberg Vineyards and the J. Davies Estate in Napa Valley, presents its tenth vintage of Davies Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Expanding on knowledge gained through the production of the J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the Diamond Mountain estate, this bottling represents an outstanding range of sites across the Napa Valley. Each vineyard is intentionally farmed to produce low yields, resulting in vivid, concentrated flavors. The finished wine exhibits vibrant fruitful flavors, a rich texture, and firm tannic structure, allowing for enjoyment now as well as extended aging.

The Napa Valley was Californias first AVA, or American Viticultural Area, recognized by the U.S. government in 1981. Though just 30 miles long and a few miles wide, Napa Valley is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world. Home to various microclimates, terrain and soils, it has a dry Mediterranean climate which is ideal for producing consistent wines from vintage to vintage. This climate provides near perfect growing conditions during the peak growing season with little rainfall, warm days, and cool nights. Throughout the growing season, the canopy is carefully managed to ensure optimal fruit development.

The 2021 growing season began with minimal rain, resulting in modest bud break in the spring with heat spikes from June through the beginning of September, ensuring small-sized and intensely-flavored berries. Harvest began at the end of September, with a more natural load on vines and grapes packed with flavor, resulting in another remarkable vintage.

Tasting notes

This 2021 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has rich aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and plum, with notes of cocoa powder, coffee, barrel spice, sage, and light herbal notes. A broad and juicy entry of raspberry welcomes the palate, along with black pepper and tobacco. The layered flavors in this wine are supported by well-structured and fine-grained tannins with a dynamic finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson, Jessica Koga and Hugh Davies
