David Arthur Propietary Red 2016
After nearly forty years of farming grapes on their Pritchard Hill Estate, David Arthur is pleased to announce the launch of the 'Next Generation' of David Arthur Vineyards wine ~ DAV. They have created a new, modern wine that represents the bold personality found in each and every bottle of their Estate wines. This Bordeaux-style blend weaves together the rich, concentrated elegance and power of mountain-grown Bordeaux varietals as well as the best of surrounding vineyards within the Napa Valley. The wine is aged an average of 20 months in French oak barrels, and has a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver plush, mouth-filling structure with soft, elegant tannins.
Look for a dark cerise color offering an array of fruit and spice aromas; bright cherry, red raspberry, baked cassis, and plum followed by notes of anise, baking spices, garrigue and cherry cola. The palate is soft and plush with fine-grained tannins offering beautiful acidity and structure. The finish is long and silky with flavors of candied plum, tamarind, brown sugar and molasses. Best from 2018 to 2027.

Bottle ShopThis is a stunning value from the elite David Arthur stable of Cabernet-based wines. It's rich, round, mouth-filling, structured and full of dense mountain tannins. Black cherry, cassis, anise and dark spices abound... this is really delicious and a great choice for the $50-100 Cab buyer.
