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.
"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."
"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. "
