Tasting notes

The 2016 J. Davies Estate Cabernet opens with rich aromas of red raspberry and red plum, accentuated by undertones of cocoa powder and cola spice. Supple tannins anchor the wines well-structured palate, where a concentrated entry of baked strawberry and blackberry leads to a juicy acidity and lengthy finish."

"The 2015 J. Davies Estate Cabernet opens with rich aromas of blackberry, cherry and dried floral elements, accentuated by undertones of vanilla, clove and milk chocolate. Integrated tannins anchor the wines well-structured palate, where a concentrated and powerful entry of plum, black currant and raspberry leads to a smooth finish with a touch of cocoa powder and graphite."

"The 2014 J. Davies Estate Cabernet 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 2016 J. Davies Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the wine's 16th vintage. A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec and 6% Petit Verdot, it spent 22 months in 62% new French oak. The opulence on the nose shows off dark chocolate and savory herbs, leather and blackberry. Lush and round on the mouth, this curvy, earthy red offers up cinnamon and cumin, and a hint of spearmint. Fruit is black and lathered with black licorice.- The Tasting Panel (November 2019)

The 2015 J. Davies Diamond Mountain has a deep garnet-purple color and offers up classic black currant, black plum and mulberry scents with hints of cigar box, yeast extract and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied with a great core of black berry and earthy layers, the fruit is supported by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with a pleasant herbal lift.- The Wine Advocate (October 2017)

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Davies 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.- The Wine Advocate (December 2016)
