Winemaker Notes

Their 2014 Meritaggio has a dense, dark ruby violet color that shows off a higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of baked cassis and plum as well as cocoa nibs, cedar and earth tones. The palate is lush and full-bodied while framed with Sangiovese’s acidity, candied strawberry and red cherry leading to a long savory finish. Best experience from 2016 to 2023.

Wine Enthusiast
This blends 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Pretty and inviting, it's bright and grippy, highly enjoyable in its fleshy mix of strawberry and mocha, with deliciously good structure.
JS 90
James Suckling
A little reductive on the nose with tile, plum and earth aromas that follow through to a full body with black pepper, dried fruit and a lightly jammy finish. A little rustic but fun. Made from most cabernet with a quarter sangiovese and cabernet franc. Touch of petit verdot. Drink now

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.

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.
