Davies Napa Cab Six Pack - 2016 and 2017 (6 x 750 mml)

This six bottle set offers you the opportunity to enjoy two vintages of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons - 2016 and 2017. Three bottles of each vintage are included in this set.

The 2016 vintage was a near-perfect growing season with ideal weather condition throughout. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August, and then a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness for the light yields that were present.

For the 2017 vintage, abundant winter rains prior to the growing season helped recharge reservoirs and groundwater. Spring weather was cool to mild, with increased vine vigor and extended flowering in some areas. Over Labor Day weekend, high temperatures kicked harvest into high gear until mid-September, when cooler weather arrived giving red varieties extra hang time.

Expanding on knowledge gained through the production of the J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the Diamond Mountain estate, these bottlings offers a broader exploration of the Napa Valley. A diverse blend of vineyards has allowed the winemaking team to craft a deliciously layered and balanced Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons.

Tasting notes

The 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet opens with rich aromas of spiced cherry, red plum and cranberry, accentuated by undertones of red licorice, vanilla and cinnamon. Well-integrated tannins anchor the wines palate where the fruitful entry of blackberry, pomegranate and red currant leads to an equally smooth finish of fig, Indian spice and nutmeg.

The 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon opens with rich aromas of red cherry, boysenberry and milk chocolate accentuated with notes of cinnamon, chai spice and floral undertones. Well-structured tannins anchor the wines palate where the juicy entry of black cherry and red currant lead to a smooth finish with hints of pepper, anise, mint and oolong tea.
