2014 J. Davies "Jamie" Cabernet (1 x 750 ml)

The Davies family, proprietors of Schramsberg and Davies Vineyards in Napa Valley, presents the third vintage of the J. Davies Jamie, the finest Cabernet Sauvignon crafted from its historic Diamond Mountain vineyard property. Bearing her signature, this wine is named in honor of Schramsberg's matriarch, the late Jamie Davies. Along with her husband Jack, she revived the Schramsberg property in 1965 with a inspired vision of crafting world-class American sparkling wines. Five decades later, son Hugh, his wife Monique and a second generation of the Davies has taken on the challenge of producing extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon from vines grown on the familys hillside property. They are proud to release the J. Davies Jamie Cabernet Sauvignon, representing the pinnacle of an endeavor that spans over 156 years.

Tasting notes

This wine 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 effortlessly with dark chocolate and are seamlessly brought together with a well-structured, rich mid-palate.- Winemakers Sean Thompson, Celia Welch and Hugh Davies

The most expensive wine of the group is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Davies Estate Jamie. I suspect this is the proprietors selection of the best barrels, and it is a special wine. Juicy, with loads of sucrosity, a dense purple color, and plenty of cassis, blueberry and black berry fruit, the wine is full-bodied, but at the same time, incredibly elegant and pure. Drink it over the next 20-25 years, although I wouldnt be surprised to see it last longer given its almost impeccable balance.- The Wine Advocate (December 2016)
