*2006 David Arthur Elevation 1147 Cabernet Sauvignon
David Arthur Elevation 1147 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, USA 2006
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is a best barrels selection. It's the densest, most tannic of David Arthur's current releases, a massive wine stuffed with black currants, blackberries, anise, tobacco and smoky new oak. Best of all, it's dry, dry, dry. Fine now, if you're into young wines, but should age well in a good cellar for many years. (WE)
Every year we have the opportunity to pull out all the stops and make the ultimate expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from David’s vineyard. Sitting at over one thousand feet above sea level, these carefully selected vines give us our much celebrated and highly sought-after flagship wine: Elevation 1147. Expressive and complex, much like David himself, this wine exudes everything we love about the terroir of Pritchard Hill. Always 100% single-varietal Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine simultaneously exudes power and finesse, structure and elegance, extraction and grace. Nature and nurture have once again come together to showcase one of Napa Valley’s finest expressions of this noble grape.
