Winemaker Notes

Every year we have the opportunity to take the best of the best grapes and let them stand by themselves, we call this Elevation 1147. Elevation 1147 is always 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and a core percentage comes from the same block each year. The wine style is that of no other from David Arthur in that the structure is massive and full palate. The name Elevation 1147 comes from our location high atop Pritchard Hill. Elevation 1147 is the flagship.

Wine of David Arthur Vineyards and thus is consistently highly allocated.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Arthur’s flagship offering, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Elevation 1147, boasts a gorgeous nose of blueberry pie, creme de cassis, graphite, charcoal and spice. It is a rich, full-bodied yet elegant, well-proportioned, pure, dense, impressive wine. While approachable, it will benefit from 5-6 years of cellaring and will keep for 20-25 years.

Rating: 94+

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

This 100% Cabernet spent nearly two years in 100% new French oak. As a result, it's enormously oaky in youth. You can barely smell or taste anything beyond toothpicks. But the wine is still young and very tannic, and with a massive core of blackberries, cherries and dark chocolate, it's a ticking time bomb, just waiting to explode. Hold for at least six years and see what happens.

JS 92
James Suckling

Gorgeous nose of crushed raspberries and blueberries. Minerals and flowers too. Full-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a long and fruity finish.

David Arthur Winery Image
David Arthur Vineyards was founded in 1985 by brothers David and Bob Long. Over a glass of wine, with his father, David discovered his father had purchased Napa Valley property in the late 1950s. David relocated to Napa Valley in 1977 and began to learn the wine business literally from the ground up, serving internships at Chappellet, Joseph Phelps and Schramsberg. In 1978 and 1979, David cleared the land and in 1980, planted the first grapes. David Arthur Vineyards' first vintage was the 1985 Chardonnay. The first red wine, Meritaggio, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese, followed in 1992. In 1996, David Arthur Vineyards began producing their now renowned Elevation 1147, named one of the top Cabernets of 1997 by Wine Spectator.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all products

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
