Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

More than any wine we have crafted, David's Cuvee shows the pure fruit essence of Cabernet Sauvignon. As you pour the wine into a glass it reveals the vibrant aroma of crushed blue berries and cherries. As the first wave of fruit starts to subside, hints of spice and mocha build and draw you in. The lavish textures showcase the vineyard's amazing natural acidity. This rich, generous wine keeps expanding, yet remains lively and never becomes heavy. Of the 40-plus wines which have been produced from Showket Vineyard, this is the Cabernet Sauvignon that defines it.

Critical Acclaim

"A classy, stylish wine that shows off an herb and olive side, joining cedar, sandalwood, ripe plum, cassis and blackberry fruit that's spicy, firm and full-bodied. Impressive for its polished tannins and finesse, ending with subtle, detailed flavors."
95 Points

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Showket Vineyard David’s Cuvee offers pure notes of cedarwood, spice box, creme de cassis, licorice and blueberries. The explosive finish and overall quality of this wine reminds me of some of the Schrader-Beckstoffer To-Kalon Cabernet Sauvignons made by Thomas Brown. This wine should have at least 20 years of potential. "

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
