Winemaker Notes

Our 2014 Elevation 1147 has an intensely deep ruby color witha violet rim that offers an immense array of aromas from wildblackberry, cassis, followed by licorice candy, brown sugar notes,cocoa nibs and hints of black tea as well as garrigue of sage-mint.The palate is rich, yet soft and plush offering polished tannins thatare broad and chewy carrying into a long finish with flavors ofblackberry, dark cherry and light baking spices. Best from 2017to 2037.

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling
Aromas of tar, blackcurrants and blackberries follow through to a full body with tight and velvety tannins and a pretty fruit and walnut undertone on the finish. Stone/slate highlights, too. Very polished and well defined. Give it three to four years to soften. Another red from here for the cellar.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The flagship wine, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Elevation 1147, is all Cabernet Sauvignon compared to the Old Vine, which is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot, and the Three Acre that is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 2% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This is pedal-to-the-metal, seriously endowed, full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon from Pritchard Hill. Chocolate, crème de cassis, incense, graphite and earth make for a complex, multidimensional set of aromatics. Full-bodied, round, juicy and, like so many 2014s, already showing complexity and easy appeal. This full-bodied, layered and rich Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for another 20-25 years, but there is no reason to defer gratification.
D 93
Decanter
From a high elevation site on Pritchard Hill, the David Arthur 1147 boasts a nose of smoky black fruit, pencil shavings and spice. Firm but fine tannins and appreciable concentration betray its mountain origins, but the wine is also nicely balanced and harmonious.

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.

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.
