Brand new boutique Cabernet release from Schramsberg from their Estate property on Napa's Diamond Mountain.
J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% estate grown, produced, and bottled by Schramsbreg Vineyards. Two historic vineyards on the Diamond Mountain District property have been tested over a decade for their red wine potential. Winemaker Hugh Davies and Craig Roemer have been perfecting this vineyard for over 10 years and have produced an intensely fruity, beatifully balanced 2008 vintage.
95 Points Robert Parker: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain is a slightly more expensive cuvée. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Malbec and the rest Petit Verdot, this is another gorgeously elegant, beautiful wine with terrific purity, plenty of blue, red and black fruits, some floral notes, medium to full body, supple tannins and a layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally to a long, long finish. This superb wine represents a perfect style between the elegance of Bordeaux and the ripeness and exuberance of a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink it over the next 20 years."
94 Points Antonio Galoni (Vinous): "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Davies is the most powerful and tightly wound of the wines I saw. Firm Diamond Mountain tannins give the wines much of their distinctive personality. Graphite, smoke, licorice, black cherry, lavender and savory herbs develop in the glass, adding considerable complexity. Bright saline notes give the wine a final burst of energy on the close."
