Tasting notes

The 2014 "Jamie" holds perfumed aromas of dark red cherry, dried strawberry, raspberry and rose petal combined with violet, black tea and coffee. Dense concentrated fruit flavors of black currant, black cherry and mint mingle effortlesly with dark chocolate and are seamlessly brought together with a well-structured, rich mid-palate."

"The 2014 J. Davies Estate Cabernet Sauvignon leads with rich aromas of dark red cherry, black plum, tobacco leaf, and white pepper. The palate is densely layered with fruitful flavors of cassis and blueberry, and supported by delicious undertones of cinnamon, clove, and coriander. The polished fine-grain tannins carry the flavors to a long finish."

"The 2014 J. Davies "jd" holds aromas of vanilla, blueberry, and mulberry accentuated by licorice and dark chocolate. The bright entry of raspberry and clove are infused with a hint of mint and fresh plum, which are sustained by the extended youthful finish.

Reviews

98 Points - Cellar Selection
Named for the late matriarch of the property, this (2014 J. Davies 'Jamie') is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot, all of it grown on hillside estate vineyards. It dances around cherry, cassis and rose petal, the core of the wine soft in integrated tannins and oak. Balanced in weight, it is undeniably lovely, complex and beautiful. It will do well in the cellar.- Wine Enthusiast (February 2019)

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Davies Estate Diamond Mountain is a slightly more expensive cuvée. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Malbec and the rest Petit Verdot, this is another gorgeously elegant, beautiful wine with terrific purity, plenty of blue, red and black fruits, some floral notes, medium to full body, supple tannins and a layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally to a long, long finish. This superb wine represents a perfect style between the elegance of Bordeaux and the ripeness and exuberance of a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink it over the next 20 years.- Wine Advocate (December 2016)

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon JD from Diamond Mountain is another beautiful wine from the Davies Family. Dense ruby/purple with crème de cassis, licorice and spice, the wine cuts a medium to fullbodied mouthfeel, but has superb purity, and impeccable balance. Nothing is out of place, the tannins silky, the acidity offers vibrancy and the fruit is pure and present. This is a beauty to drink over the next 15-20 years.- Wine Advocate (December 2016)
