Winemaker Notes

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petite Verdot.

A dark ruby red color with a light magenta hue offers aromas of candied cherry, plum and black olive. There are hints of earth and spice along with notes of cedar and licorice candy. The entry on the palate has both velvety and fine grained tannin with a finish that carries flavors of dark cherry, toasted oak and star anise.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
A fine, pure, fruity young wine. May be the one to drink while you’re waiting for your other David Arthurs to age. Shows strong, ripe blackberry, currant, cherry, cola and cedar flavors, wrapped into exceptionally smooth tannins. Still, it should develop for a good eight years in a cool cellar.

David Arthur, California
Image of winery
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.
