    Winemaker Notes

    This densely colored dark ruby red wine is packed with a complexityof aromas beginning with baked cherry, plum and cassis. Thinlayers of earth tones- wild sage- mint and tobacco. The palate isfull and concentrated in the front and middle palate. Layered withbaked fruit cake, wild currants-blackberries with a long chewy finishand a persistence of Sangiovese tannin.

    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.

    Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

    Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
